This Azilal is a rare find. The colors and pattern is exquisite. I couldn't get enough of the silky wool, and the hints of red, yellow, and turquoise. Authentic old Azilal rugs are hard to come by and I knew I had to have it for my collection.
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:warm cream with brown, red, turquoise, and yellow. Handwoven wool, cotton, and some goats hair.
**PLEASE NOTE: this rug is NOT stark white, but more of a creamy background consistent with natural wool.
