It's rare I select vintage Zemmour rugs for my shop. Most of the rugs that come out of this tribe are red, so I was thrilled to find this neutral one. The name Lahaf means "quilt" in Arabic. This symmetrical design is characteristic of this tribe. They typically do a quilt type design, with tribal motifs contained inside of horizontal and vertical lines. I hand selected this rug in Morocco in the Spring of 2020.
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 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:warm natural wool (creamy beige base color) with faded brown/gray & peach/orange. Hand knotted wool.
SIZE: 46 x 80"
PLEASE NOTE:Because this is a handmade item, there may be slight imperfections in weaving, pattern, or shape. Please note all vintage items have endured a previous life and so may have slight wear and repairs.
