This little guy is such a special find! I'm not exactly sure of his exact origin. I was advised he may have Azilal and Ourika influences. I just love his freeform pattern and neutral color palette of cream and soft brown. It's a very unique one. And the wool is soooooo soft!
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.
