THIS RUG'S STORY:
Emerald Eyes is a vintage Boujad from the Middle Atlas region in Morocco. This rug features emerald/teal green tribal motifs on a mostly pale orange background. Green is not as common in the Moroccan rugs, so this rug is a really interesting one. The asymmetrical pattern is typical of rugs found in the Boujad region. The bottom part of the rug is almost pinkish in tone with colorful tassels.
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.
