This rug originated in the Middle Atlas region and was handcrafted by the Boujaad tribe. I selected it especially for the beautiful gradual fade to it. It has almost ombre vibes, which was the inspiration behind the name. The color is especially unique. It starts out in a raspberry plum purple color at one end and transitions into lighter purple and pinky purple tones. The diamond motif is a nice simple design to balance the bold intense color.
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: The color lightens from a raspberry plum to lighter purple and pink tones on the other end. Hand knotted wool on a cotton base.
