THIS RUG'S STORY:
Named after my favorite town along the Emerald Coast of Florida, Seaside is the perfect little soft pastel rug with coastal vibes. It was woven by the Azilal tribe in the High Atlas mountain region of Morocco. I love the pretty mix of warm pink, seafoam, and khaki yellow. The background is a very warm worn creamy color. This rug is a special find as this one is unlike most rugs of this tribe you see out there!
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: Beige natural wool color with sea green, soft pink, khaki/yellow colors. Hand woven wool with cotton.
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - approximately from the 1970's
