Meaning happiness or blessing in Arabic, this rug is just that - a burst of unexpected joy! I love the color combo and that show-stopping teal background. This design mixed with the colors is the reason this one is a part of our Private Collection! A rug like this is not easy to come by!
This one's exact origin is unknown, but it is from the Middle Atlas mountain region of Morocco. I've held on to it since 2019! So crazy I know, but do you blame me? The pile on this one is a bit shorter, but is soft and silky. Also - he's in fantastic condition!
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 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.

ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - approximately 30-40 years old
