Myra is a small rug that was created by the tribes of the Azilal region in Morocco. I love the simple and timeless pattern it creates by using criss cross lines forming a diamond pattern. A warm natural creamy wool base is paired with faded gray tones and light orange/peach detail at the end. It has low pile and is worn from years of previous use but would be a great addition to 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.
