THIS RUG'S STORY:
Named after the Moroccan girls name meaning "moonlight", Souhaila is a gorgeous runner made by women of the Boujad tribe. She features a bold diamond pattern of pink and midnight blue/black. Diamonds are a common motif used by this tribe, and many times symbolize femininity and fertility. She would be perfect in a kitchen or hallway where she could shine as the focal point - not for the meek or mild! Colors of the red and blue cotton base shine through the wear of the wool pile. She's a fun spunky rug I hand-selected in the fall of 2018 while traveling in Morocco.
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 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.
