THIS RUG'S STORY:
Enigma is an intriguing rug from the Hoauz region, located just outside of Marrakech. The color palette in this one is insane! I love the mix, as well as the weaving style that combines two techniques, creating a high and low pile mix. This unique rug is in excellent condition. I hand selected him in Morocco back in 2019.
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 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.
