Meaning “unique “ in Arabic, this rug is such an amazing piece. A Beni Jalidssen rug, this is the only rug I’ve ever come across from this lesser known tribe. The color shifts from a purple background hue to red and features some blush and dark indigo in there too. The almost square size is another great feature.
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.
