THIS RUG'S STORY:
I couldn't resist this little piece of Berber art. It's newly made (not vintage) and I fell in love with the color and pattern. Its palette of brown, orange, blue, and gold, the colors remind me of the Southwest. The woven border at the ends is really neat, and it features long fringe on one side.
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.
