A luxurious rug with a soft, durable deep pile, the vintage ‘Violette’ rug is a stunning example of the traditional wares originating from the Middle Atlas Mountains of Morocco.
Its intricate design captures the enchanting spirit and magic of the region, and underscores the skilful artistry of its makers.
Warm apricot and peach tones set the base for highly detailed geometric motifs in hints of apple green, inky blue and cream. The defining feature of this piece, the Berber patterning, tells the story of the artisan creator in symbolic detail.
High quality and full of texture, the soft pile has a sheen-like appearance, while a naturally aged variegated patina adds to the character of this truly individual creation.
Created to tell its own story unique to its origin, each rug uses techniques shared throughout generations and has lived a life prior to its purchase. Filled with symbolism and colour, this one-of-a-kind piece is breathtaking in its own right!
