Taken from the Arabic name meaning "flourishing and populous", I named Omar after its amazing plush feel and high pile. It is a small rug that was woven in Azilal region in Morocco. It has a simple, modern diamond pattern with a creamy gray base and darker gray/brown details. It would be the perfect compliment to a 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.
COLORS/MATERIALS: Natural beige/gray, brown, dark grey. Hand woven and hand knotted wool.
ESTIMATED AGE:Vintage - approx 20 years old
SIZE: 29 x 74"
PILE: High (pile is over an inch high so I wouldnt put it near a doorway)
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.
