You may remember Checkerboard, who was another checkered pattern Boujad runner I had recently in the shop! Well that one has sold and I saw this one on my recent sourcing trip to Morocco and knew it would be a much desired find. Check patterns are all the rage in the interior design world, and this rug being vintage makes it such a sought after item!
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: Brown, cream, hints blue in the background. Hand knotted cotton & wool.
ESTIMATED AGE:Vintage - 20 years approx.

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.
