This vintage Haouz rug was woven in the area just outside of Marrakech. Haouz rugs typically are comprised of cotton and wool, and collection of colors. This one features a warm raspberry base, with beige, peach, brown, and sage green tones. I love the abstract yet tribal design. I approximate this rug to be about 20-30 years old.
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.
