Hamza is named after its faded neutral color. It combines a muted beige with dark brown detailing, giving it almost a very masculine feel. If you look really close, you can pick up hints of light orange, taupey purple, green, and yellow in some parts of the rug, but overall it reads neutral. The pile is low with wear and age. It's a pretty versatile piece that could look good in almost any space.
I named this rug a traditional Arabic name, which means "strength" or "steadfast". It's origin is from the Boujad region in Morocco, and has been used for decades. Even though there is visible wear, Hamza is a very interesting find!
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.
