THIS RUG'S STORY:
This stunning Ait Bou Ichaouen rug is such an amazing palette of purple, chartreuse, faded orange, red, blue, and cream tones. As you know, I love this tribe's individuality and stories they tell through their weaving. Coming in around 6.5 by 10' feet in size, this is a great size for a living room or bedroom.
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.
