THIS RUG'S STORY:
I love a great runner. And every once in awhile, I come across a spectacular one like this! The colors in this vintage Gharb rug range from red, to light orange, green, soft lavender, and black. The pattern is comprised of diamonds and abstract color blocks. She would be the perfect addition to a kitchen or hallway in a casual home! I hand selected this rug in Morocco on my sourcing trip in the early Spring of 2020.
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.
