Treasure Trove

Sourcing vintage rugs in Morocco is like finding a needle in the haystack. We followed a lead from a friend in our old hometown of Essaouira and connected with a carpet collector in Marrakech.  We were privileged to spend two days with him chatting about the history of the craft in Morocco and unfolding and folding hundreds of rugs from his private collection.  He is unique in that he is an artist himself and when he repairs a vintage piece he does it so as to render the carpet whole with his own signature style.
