Nothing subtle about this little Azilal! The cream background is the perfect backdrop for the colourful pattern of primarily teal, with accents of goldenrod yellow, dark pink, blue, and chartreuse green. It’s the perfect boho piece! It’s an excellent size for a kids room, or for someone looking for a bold statement it would look great in an entryway as well!
Azilal rugs of this era are known for their eccentric designs and symbols, usually done in vibrant colors. They are generally lower pile and lighter weight. This is due to the rows of simple wefting left between rows with single knots, as opposed to thicker rugs that have been double knotted on almost every row. It was suggested that the colourful pattern was added a few years after the rug was made, which explains the perfectly quirky mix of the rich bright colors and soft worn original cream wool.
Vintage Berber rugs were not made for production, but as functional pieces to be used for many years and passed down through generations. The amazing thing about this is that it means that all the beautiful colors and patterns used have a true meaning behind them that are personal expressions of the woman who made it. These pieces can show signs of wear which I believe adds to their beauty and value, while telling a story about where they were before June + Blue. All rugs are cleaned, and any repairs needed are done in Morocco before shipment.
