THIS RUG'S STORY:
The color and pattern of this Ait Bou Ichaouen beauty are to die for! He's named after the city in the Sahara region of Morocco. His warm orange color paired with charcoal gray gives off all the desert vibes. Also, this tribe no longer weaves rugs so it is a special one!
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.
