Azilal rugs are often known for their neutral base and geometric abstract designs. I love the design of this one, but also one of the most special features is the hints of aqua blue woven in. I named it Essaouira for my favorite seaside city in Morocco. It has those laid back casual, coastal vibes!
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.
COLORS/MATERIALS: Cream, yellow, aqua, dark blue, black, magentas. Hand knotted cotton & wool mix.
**please note: this rug has a small stain, see last photos for reference.
