THIS RUG'S STORY:
This is a rug we've been holding on to for a bit! I haven't been able to part with her. She's a special find from the Zaire tribe. Her detailed pattern features motifs in little multi-colored squares, which is fairly characteristic of this tribe. I love the color combo and intricate design!
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.
