Moroccan Flatweave Wool Golaoui Runner Rug - 2.5ft x 8ft Black Arrows
My absolute favorite rug we currently offer. These Moroccan Golaoui rugs truly defy description. This rug is bordered in black, with varying earthtone stripes that switch colors halfway, creating an interesting arrow or flag style pattern. The tight style of weaving has an almost tweed-like look, and the overall effect is quite mesmerizing and thoroughly satisfying. This rug will delight you every time you see it.
Golaoui rugs are comprised of three main repeating motifs, representational of the geographic area they represent. The carpets are made with natural wool from the local sheep. The dyes are all natural, the hallmark of which is is the ability to be washed without having the colors run, a sign of a truly well made and valuable rug.
Depending on the size of the rug, it can take weeks to create. These flatweave carpets are tightly wove and durable. This type of carpet has been made in this region of Morocco for centuries and is very unique to this particular geographic area.
Sourced directly from a cooperative in the southern Moroccan town of Taznakht, Morocco. Made of handspun sheep wool and natural cotton. Handmade by native female Moroccan weavers.
