THIS RUG'S STORY:
I adore this one so much, it reminded me of the colors in the iconic cereal. Estimated to be from the 1970's, this vintage El Gharb runner features a mix of high and lower pile throughout. It would be a cheery pop of color to a kitchen or hallway.
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.
