Named after the Arabic girls' name meaning "beautiful", this gorgeous vintage Zemmour is one of the prettiest I've ever had. Another rug I've kept for months, wanting to keep for myself, but now have finally released. The purples, peach tones and slightest shades of pink at the bottom make this a lovely find. The wool is soft and the tribal patterns add to the interest and uniqueness of the piece.
Also another thing to note is the width. This rug is about 7' wide, which is a rare find for a vintage Moroccan rug, as most fall within the 5'-6' wide category. This rug would be perfect for a bedroom or living space.
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: Varying shades of light purple, peachy orange, pink at the one end, some cream details. Hand knotted wool.
PILE: medium low
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.
