THIS RUG'S STORY:
This vintage Azilal rug was love at first sight! Its color accents of blue, yellow, and green immediately drew me in and I knew he had to be part of the collection. Azilal rugs are known for their neutral colors, asymmetrical geometric patterns, and tribal motifs. I love the color pops in this one, definitely not so ordinary for this tribe. The rare colors and edge details make this one a special find. I hand selected him while in Morocco, back in the spring of 2019.
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.
COLORS/MATERIALS: natural creamy wool with green, blue, yellowy orange color accents. Hand woven wool.
(*Please note: this rug is NOT white, but a natural cream color that is consistent with sheep wool)
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - approximately 30 years old
SIZE: 39x56" (not including tassels)
CONDITION: Good, but has some stains that were not able to be removed during the cleaning process. Although they are visible, for the rare colors, this rug is a fantastic piece.
PLEASE NOTE: Because this is a handmade item, there may be slight imperfections in weaving, pattern, or shape. Please note all vintage items have endured a previous life and so may have slight wear and repairs. Some holes or wear spots have not been repaired to preserve the character and integrity of the piece.
