Large Pink & White Vintage Moroccan Azilal Wool Shag Rug - 5ft x 8ft
This rug adds warmth and joy to any room. At first glance it appears to be a luscious pink rug with white diamonds, but upon closer inspection, one can see the subtle and whimsical design variations, as well as the beauty of the multicolored weaving yarn peeking through.
The carpets are made with natural raw wool from the local sheep in the Azilal region of Morocco. Depending on the size of the rug, it can take weeks to months create. Each knot is individually tied and cut, resulting in about one meter of rug in two weeks.
These pile-knot carpets are plush and warm, extremely cozy. This type of carpet has been made in this region of Morocco in the Middle Atlas mountains for centuries and is traditionally one of the first items that a woman will weave for her new home upon marriage.
Gorgeous rug, so luxurious. Made of plush sheep wool. Hand-dyed using all natural dyes. Handmade by native Moroccan weavers.
