VINTAGE MOROCCAN AZILAL RUG-ZAPID
This rug is woven by traditional tribes from the Azilal region of Morocco, which is considered between the middle Atlas and the High Atlas mountains. These rugs were historically made for use within the home, giving the women the liberty to be creative and adaptive, and to use their weaving as an expression of self. Designs can often look like a piece of abstract art that you would find within museum walls, and each is 100% unique and the only one like this in the world.
What I love about this rug: I love the simplicity of the brown and cream, and the asymmetric patterning is beautiful.
Colors: Cream, Brown
Age: Vintage, from approximately 30-40 years ago
Condition:Good. This is a vintage piece which has been professionally cleaned and repaired, but please expect one-of a kind imperfections that add to it's wonderful history. There is discoloration on the upper corner of the rug that is there after professional cleaning, so please do check the photos carefully. In Morocco this kind of "flaw" actually adds character to a rug, but others are not keen.
The Good Rug: My small business was born out of a personal love for textiles and travel. I live on the East Side of Detroit, and travel frequently to Morocco and Turkey, to hand-pick rugs that I find both beautiful and eclectic. I choose only the highest quality pieces that I would want for my own home, and support small businesses and weavers in each country. I give to women-centered organizations around the world and my local community of Detroit with a portion of my profits.
