I named Inca Trail after bucket list place I hope to one day see. This rug has nothing to do with Peru or Macchu Picchu, but is from the Atlas Mountain region of Talsint. The Ait Bou Ichauoen tribe created this rug. This tribe is known for its very interesting patterns and colors, as well as it's long sizes to accommodate the tents the tribe lived in. I knew I had to grip up this one the minute I saw it - it's a very rare design!
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: faded purple, yellow gold, and black colors. Handmade, hand knotted wool
