A unique size, with a strong and central motif is what initially drew me to this rug, but over time I came to love it even more because of the lovely color scheme with greens, whites and browns. The cascading diamonds too, on the left of the rug, are enchanting, particularly as they balance the diamonds on the right, but add in a dynamism of upward movement.
This rug is woven by traditional tribes from the Azilal region of Morocco, which is in 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.
