THIS RUG'S STORY:
This vintage Boujad displays an array of bold colors and a spectacular design. The pattern on this one is very unique - I love how it has alternating rows of checkered and diamond motifs. It has low pile and has its share of wear (frayed edges and all!), but I think it is what really gives this piece the life and character that it has! Also, the nice wide size makes it ideal for a Living room. It's these details that make it so special!
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.
