ABOUT MOROCCAN RUGS:
Moroccan rugs date back centuries. They were once used for protection against cold weather, but now they are mainly used as a part of house luxury. The art of rug weaving is passed down from generation to generation, carrying on a thousand-year-old tradition. Rugs from different regions of Morocco vary in style as artisans include local folklore, symbolism and weaving techniques into their rug designs.
Moroccan rural carpets are handmade and usually homemade by women. they are still an active industry in some rural areas of the country. Many Berber families earn their primary income from building-up carpets manually and selling them in local markets, merchants and tourists. The traditional carpets differ from the modern ones.
ABOUT THIS RUG
This extraordinary vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild carpet exhibits an older tradition to the tribe's weaving technique. A teal blue lozenge pattern lies just beneath the pile of cranberry red, tangerine, and light magenta wool. This carpet was woven to be reversible, showing its clear Berber message in the motifs on the back side. Can be used pile side down during warmer months and up during colder seasons, or reverse as you wish...this piece offers two unique carpets as one. 100% wool.
