Coming from the Arabic girls name meaning “light”, Nora is a light purple Boujad rug with so much charm and character. The faded purple base color mixed with accents of purple, orange, yellow, and green is so lovely. This one is perfectly imperfect - the size is a bit narrower at the top than bottom, and the is areas of wear and age. A repair is visible only from the back as you can see in the last photo. A nice feature is her nearly square size! This rug would be a great addition to a home where she can continue to live on and be well loved on.
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.
