Fire Dreaming - Excellent double sided Zayan rug


   This excellent double sided (pile and flat weave) rug by the Zayan tribe is a beautiful example of traditional Moroccan design that emphasizes great quality.  With lots of deep natural indigo throughout this rug would have been used with the pile side down during the day or when visitors came around to display the intricate design, and with the pile side up for sleeping on in the evening.  Over the years the wearing away of the pile slowly reveals the once-hidden design on both sides.
