During my purchasing trips to Morocco, I always look for beautiful unique pieces that can fit nicely into our concept.
I bid along with the local merchants on the criée berbère of the carpet souks in the heart of Marrakech, which means that most of the intermediate channels are skipped!
The kilim rug is best hand washed and not machine washed.
Regular cleaning is advised with vacuuming / whipping and using traditional methods with water and brown soap. Let it dry patiently in the sunshine.
A gentle wool or cold program is recommended only once in a while...
REGION: BOUJAD RUGS ARE HAND WOVEN RUGS FROM A SMALL REGION IN THE MIDDLE ATLAS. THESE RUGS ARE ALL INDIVIDUALLY CRAFTED BY HAND, TYPICALLY VERY COLORFUL AND MAY BE SLIGHTLY ASYMMETRICAL IN THEIR SHAPE AND PATTERN WITH SOME MINOR IMPERFECTIONS.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A HANDMADE ITEM BY MOROCCAN ARTISANS, SO THERE MAY BE SLIGHT IMPERFECTIONS IN WEAVING, PATTERN, OR SHAPE. ALL VINTAGE OR OLDER ITEMS HAVE HAD A PREVIOUS LIFE. AS THESE RUGS WERE NOT ORIGINALLY MADE FOR RETAIL THERE MAY BE SLIGHT WEAR AND REPAIRS. WE DO NOT SEE THESE AS IMPERFECTION, BUT THE LOVE AND STORY BEHIND EACH PIECE.
