THIS RUG'S STORY:
Brazen is a special find. Made by the Ait Bou Ichaouen tribe from the Talsint region of Morocco, this beauty features an extremely wide design for these tribal rugs. As they were created by women on a handloom, most vintage Moroccan rugs are approximately 6 to 6.5 feet wide. Anything 7 feet or older is extremely rare. This rug's design also sets it apart. The alternating rows of tribal symbols is not something I've seen in a Talsint rug. Another fun fact: this tribe actually does not weave rugs anymore. So you are getting what will someday soon be extinct! Hand selected in Morocco back in 2018, this rug is a beautiful piece of art and history.
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.
