This rug was handcrafted by women of the Boujad tribe. I selected it for its lovely faded colors, distinct and unusual pattern, and character. It is an authentic Moroccan rug that is over 50 years old. Most of the Moroccan rugs you see are not as old as this one! But with the age comes imperfections - and this one has its fair share. It's got wear, fade, and areas of repair/fray. It's future home will see these flaws as a sign as a life well lived!
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.
