Faiz is a classic Azilal runner in the soft cream and brown colors. Azilal rugs are made by the tribes in the High Atlas mountains. Most are known for their tighter knots, geometric patterns, and neutral colors. You don't often see the Azilals in this size, (usually they are shorter) so this one is a nice one for anyone looking for a longer runner. He would fit in perfectly in a hallway. I hand selected this rug during my travels to Morocco in the fall of 2018.
ABOUT MOROCCAN RUGS:
Each vintage Moroccan rug is hand woven and knotted by Berber women of the tribal region specified. This level of craftsmanship can take up to weeks or months to complete a single rug. Weaving techniques have been passed down through the generations. The patterns, designs, and colors in each rug vary with each rug, weaver, and tribe – so each piece is truly a unique work of art and 2 pieces will never be the same. Often these rugs have been handed down through the families who created them, and have been uncovered from the mountain and rural areas of Morocco.
COLORS/MATERIALS: Cream with brown - 2 dots of colorful thread (blue green and red) can be found in there too. Hand knotted and handwoven wool with cotton base. (Please note: This rug is NOT white, but more of a cream color consistent with natural wool)
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - approximately 20 years old
