Iridescence is a very special green Beni M'Guild rug. In fact, so special that I've never came across another one like it in my searches!
He caught my eye for a couple of reasons: He changes color depending on how you view him! He's a very light green, but the intensity of the color changes from the angle you stand at, sometimes even looks more yellow-y. (See the 2 photos below)
Even more interesting - he is double sided pile! Woven with pile on the front AND the back! This is the first rug I've ever come across like this.
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 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: very light faded green that changes color. Hand knotted wool.
ESTIMATED AGE:Vintage - estimated 30-40 years
SIZE: approximately76 x 115"
PILE: low and shiny - but has pile on both sides!
PLEASE NOTE:Because this is a handmade item, there may be slight imperfections in weaving, pattern, or shape. Please note all vintage items have endured a previous life and so may have slight wear and repairs.
