Izil is a small rug that was created by the tribes of the Azilal region in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. Izil is a Berber name meaning "sublime and magnificent", and I believe that is just what this rug is. The pattern and details are truly stunning. Soft wool, pretty colors, timeless design. A warm natural creamy wool base is paired with some light taupe and medium brown tones. It is a very soft and high pile piece that would be stunning in a hallway, kitchen, bath, or entry!
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 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: Ivory/Cream, light taupe/brown and medium brown. Hand woven and hand knotted wool.
