Handmade Azilal Moroccan Rug 170 x 82cm
Delightful hand-knotted Azilal rug - cream coloured with a striking design of abstract patterns and traditional Berber symbols and motifs. The pattern of this rug comprises lines, diamonds zig-zags and symbols in black, purple, deep pink and dark blue. The colours are made from natural dyes made from plants and berries, such as madder, indigo and henna. This rug is woven by skilled artisans using a traditional hand loom, so only has tassels on one side, which is formed from the excess warp threads - there are loops on the other side, where the weaving is started from.
This a unique item, and a work of art - no two rugs are the same - and will make a unique statement in your home, whether it complements your shabby chic or ethnically-inspired boho decor or is a contrast to your neutral colour palette. It's also a playful & exciting addition to a children's bedroom, yet can also provide a bold statement in the living room to suit an art-deco 1930s or any retro-styled mid-20th century home.
