Everyone meet Aziz. He's an Azilal rug with such an incredible pattern! It's what immediately drew me in and I knew he had to be part of the collection. Azilal rugs are known for their neutral colors, asymmetrical geometric patterns, and tribal motifs. I love the neutral color tones, making this guy a versatile piece for practically any home. I hand selected him while in Morocco, back 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.

PLEASE NOTE: Because this is a handmade item, there may be slight imperfections in weaving, pattern, or shape.
