Taken from the Moroccan girls name meaning "exalted", Aleah is a gorgeous vintage Beni M'Guild kilim. I love the flatwoven rugs from this tribe so much, but the pretty ones are few and far between. This one is perfect for that casual space where a high pile rug isn't practical. I hand-selected it in Morocco in the fall of 2018.
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.
COLORS/MATERIALS: faded raspberry purple with faded green, yellow, orange, and pink. Hand knotted wool.
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - approximately 30 years old
SIZE: 64" x 113"
PILE: Flatwoven kilim (no pile) - a rug pad is recommended to extend the life of the rug, provide cushion, and keep it in place. Here's one I recommend:
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.
