This lovely runner from the Boujad region features diamonds running down the center with a very faded/worn look. The rug has a variety of colors in it (check out the back!) with the frontside featuring a light purple with almost a pale peachy pink. It's heavy distress adds to the character of the rug and history of a previous lifetime of use. Faded Glory is a unique find and piece of art that would make the perfect statement piece for a hallway or kitchen!
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.
