Such a fun and inspiring little rug from the tribal people of the Boujad region in Morocco. This type of rug is a Boucherouite and often referred to as a "rag rug" since scraps of fabric, wool, and old clothes were often used to make these rugs. They are known for being colorful and fun, and often were used to assist in daily life, like being used to sit and eat on by family members or to use as a saddle. This one is a more uncommon look, dates back to the 1970's and has an asymmetrical, freeform pattern. It's in great vintage condition and would make the perfect statement piece for a hallway, entry, or kitchen!
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.
