THIS RUG'S STORY:
As most Beni M'Guild's tend to be very bold in color, Talashaa is a stunning find with its very soft and light appearance. Talashaa means "faded" in Arabic. Beni M'Guilds come from tribes in the Atlas Mountains and feature higher pile and repetitive patterns with geometric shapes. Talashaa has been worn down so the pile is low. The overall diamond pattern gives it that timeless look. Beni's are known for the beauty on the reverse side as well.
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: soft peachy orange that goes from purple to red/orange near the bottom. Almost ombre in tone, this rug's color is hard to describe. *Color is more accurately represented in the detail shots of this rug*. Hand woven wool.
