THIS RUG'S STORY:
I had to get this one because this one is thought to be a mix of the Boujad and Azilal tribes! It has the motif and design of a Boujad, but the knot style of an Azilal! Such an interesting combo, I've never seen one anything like it. Many times this could happen if a woman was raised in one tribal region but then picked up weaving techniques after moving to a new area.
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.
