Faded with tones of light sand, blue, pink, mint, and faded black, this rug reminds me of one of my favorite California seaside cities. She's a vintage Boujad and would be the perfect fit for a laid back/casual/beachy bath, hallway, or kitchen. As you can see from the detail shots, she is heavily worn and distressed. So much character in such a small piece! Hand selected on my most recent trip to Morocco, Santa Monica is a one of a kind beauty.
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 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.
COLORS/MATERIALS: A lovely mix of cream with sandy brown and gray, pink, light mint green, blue, and a touch of purple. Hand knotted wool and cotton.

PLEASE NOTE:Because this is a handmade item, there may be slight imperfections in weaving, pattern, or shape. Please note all vintage items have endured a previous life and so may have slight wear and repairs.
