THIS RUG'S STORY:
I named this rug Summit because when I look at it, I see a series of mountains throughout the length of the rug. It is a very interesting and unique pattern from the Beni M'Guild tribe! Most of the time you see a very traditional diamond pattern, but I have never saw the design quite like this one before on a Beni M'Guild! Thus the reason I had to have it in my collection.
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.
