Named after the word meaning "tribe" in Arabic, this stunning rug has the most amazing array of tribal symbols woven right in. You can see women, camels with a man leading them, mountains, and other Berber motifs. I adore the uniqueness of this one and the story it tells by the woman who made it. Definitely one of a kind, timeless, minimal rug. It also is in excellent condition with silky wool.
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.
COLORS/MATERIALS:cream with brown; Hand knotted wool.
**please note: this rug is NOT white, but has more of a creamy background :)
ESTIMATED AGE:Vintage - approx. 40 years old
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.
