THIS RUG'S STORY:
Pinkie is a vintage Boujad from the Middle Atlas region in Morocco. This rug features a pretty pink background, with a series of brighter and lighter pink tones. There's some faded green in there too! I love the pattern on this one. This rug could be perfect in a more modern or bohemian style home. I found this rug back in the Spring of 2018 during my sourcing trip to 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 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.
