This rug originated in the Middle Atlas region and was handcrafted by the Boujaad tribe. I hand selected this rug on my most recent trip to Morocco. I named it radiance for the way the light plays off of it and creates a soft, happy mood. It's kind of a faded purple-pink color, with the slightest hints of peach, and also brown. The pattern is somewhat rare for this tribe - more simple than usually found. I love that it is more relaxed and feminine.
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 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.
