THIS RUG'S STORY:
If I had one wish, it would be for this spectacular rug to land in an amazing home! Genie is a vintage Rehamna rug with a few very interesting features. The Rehamna tribe no longer weaves rugs, so this rug is very special for that reason alone. Rugs from this tribe are hardly ever found with purple base tones - another reason it is so rare. Tribal symbols such as teapots, people, and mountains give us a glimpse into daily life in Morocco. I adore this one so much!! I've kept it now for over 2 years, but have decided to release it in hopes it lives on in its next life as a true conversation piece!
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.
