|MY RUG FROM MOROCCO|
My experience in the Marrakech Medina rug market is unforgettable! A young apprentice approached me and told me he wanted my shiny red gun metal ballpoint pen. Go figure? He offered me one of his rugs in exchange for my pen. What was so commonplace to me, was like gold to him. How could I say, no? So we did the exchange and I ended up bringing home a hand-woven one-of-a-kind rug, rich in color and texture. It now lies in my children’s play room. (See pic below) West Elm traveled with Aid to Artisans discovered and handpicked one-of-a-kind rugs, like mine BELOW, and incorporated them into their line.
