From the Moroccan girls name meaning "joy" and "cheerfulness", this vintage Azilal is such a fun happy rug! She has the stunning color combination of red with aqua, blue, and black on a cream background, with a laid back carefree tribal pattern. If you check out the back, she has a dark base that you don't see too often in the Moroccan rug world. Truly a great piece at a good price! She would be stunning in a casual space. I could see her layered on top of a larger rug in a living room, or the perfect fit for a kids room!
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.
