THIS RUG'S STORY:
Sunglow is a unique Ait Bou Ichaouen (Talsint) rug that embraces a unique technique that combines 2 types of weaving. This technique combines the flatwoven kilim with raised accent fringe areas. Talsint rugs are from a remote area near the Algerian border. This Talsint kilim is the largest I've ever seen - coming in at a whopping 14.5' in length! I'm digging all the orange, purple, and berry tones.
Sunglow is a laid back style that would work best in casual environments. It is a fun and happy rug and will complement an upbeat, easy going, or modern interior. Hand selected in Morocco.
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.
