Sahara Sunset is an interesting one. A Beni M'Rirt rug, most of the rugs made in the M'Rirt region are new rugs, but this one is a vintage rug. The pattern is a delicate and simple diamond, yet interesting with the tribal motifs created within it. The knots are very irregular and imperfect. It isn't a high pile rug, but the wear and imperfections make this one a very unique piece. Don't let its bright color scare you -although this one isn't for the faint of heart, it could truly be a showstopper in an office, bedroom, or layered on top of a larger neutral or natural fiber rug. Hand selected in Morocco, this rug is a beautiful piece of art and history.
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.
