Named after the Moroccan Arabic word meaning "royal", Malaki is a really unique find from the Beni M'Guild tribe. The design is interesting and unusual, and I love the combination of rich purple paired with marigold.
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: Magenta, purple, blue, cream, orange, red, and faded sage. Hand knotted wool.
**please note: this rug has some patches, see last photos for reference.
