Merida has a very minimal pattern. The lines form a diamond pattern and also you can see some tribal motifs at the very bottom. The color and pattern of this vintage Boujad runner are both so stunning. It truly is not like any other Moroccan runner I've come across. It has such soft wool too! This one would make a great accent in a Hallway or Kitchen! I selected this rug back in the Spring of 2018 while in Morocco.
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.

ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - estimated from the 1960's or 1970's
