THIS RUG'S STORY:
This pretty neutral guy is from a tribal area in Morocco I have only found a few pieces from - Guercif. Located in Eastern Morocco near the Algerian border, my favorite thing about this rug is the design. It is a freeform geometric piece, that feels more modern, but timeless and versatile enough to complement practically any space! The color combo of plum with dark brown on a cream base is lovely too!
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.
