THIS RUG'S STORY:
I love a good neutral rug, and Squiggles checks all the boxes! Usually vintage Beni Ourain rugs are large, but this one is the perfect medium size coming in at approximately 5 by 7 feet. He has a creamy base with taupey gray squiggly lines and extremely shiny high pile!
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.

**PLEASE NOTE: this rug is NOT stark white, but more of a creamy background consistent with natural wool.
