THIS RUG'S STORY:
Boujad rugs originated in the Atlas Mountains and are often known for their bold colors and creative designs.This gorgeous vintage Boujad rug is a special one because of how it was made. It was actually woven with 2 sides. The front is wool and the back is cotton. You can see faintly see the pattern of the front on the back. And of course, the purple and peach combo is stunning!
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.
