THIS RUG'S STORY:
Hadi is a stunning Beni Ourain rug. It is actually a creation from the subtribe called the Marmocha, who reside in the Middle Atlas Mountains in Morocco. As temperatures can change drastically in this area, these pieces are significant to Berber culture as the higher pile kept members of the family warm. Traditionally these rugs were not used purely for decorative purposes, but more commonly as blankets or to sleep on!
The name Hadi means "calm" or "guidance". Like a quiet leader. This rug may appear very simple at first glance, but it is in exceptional condition and has soft wool. The wool is more brighter cream than a lot of the Beni Ourains, and is a medium pile. It's a timeless piece that would compliment almost any space.
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.
