This stunning Boujad Boucherouite rug is such a unique find I had to have it for the shop! It features a mix of high and low pile, and a color combo of red, hot pink, soft pink, gray/black, and dark purple. The raised pile areas may look like diamonds from far away, but some are actually woven into the shape of Fatima hands, a symbol of protection in honor of Mohammed's daughter Fatima.
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.
