Just like our tip for regular Moroccan rug online- shopping, it is equally important to ensure that your seller is a trustworthy source when shopping for vintage rugs.
Moroccan rugs are precious handmade products that tend to be a small investment that lasts a lifetime, so make sure your valuable rug is actually an authentic Moroccan rug and that you are getting it from a suitable and reliable business.
When it comes to vintage shopping, the expression "age is just a number" doesn't cut it! The term vintage might sometimes be used candidly, however, in terms of Moroccan rugs, a rug is considered vintage if it was made in the 1990s or at least in the 2000s.
It is also good to know that vintage rugs hold different values depending on how and when they were made. if you are still unsure, feel free to ask your seller directly regarding the exact or the estimated date a rug was woven.
Originally, Moroccan rugs were not woven and created for commercial purposes, they were rather personal and functional creations that were made to be used by tribal families either for warmth, comfort, or adornment purposes. and so because they were made for everyday practical use, some signs of wear and tear are normal it could be a real sign confirming a rug's authenticity.
A vintage rug is also expected to have some slight marks and for older rugs even some signs of restorations! these small imperfections are what makes the beauty of these pieces and having a piece with a story makes it even more charming!
One of the known giveaways of vintage Moroccan rugs is the degree of fade in the previously brightly dyed colors. With time, the vibrant colors of vintage Moroccan rugs start fading giving them a nice and muted look!
Berber tribal love to use strong vibrant colors for their rugs such as bright reds, aubergine, tangerine, and amber that fade beautifully with time, however, a lot of modern woven rugs tend to mimic that vintage natural fade by using synthetic pastel shade dyes: such as faded soft pink and aqua blue.
These beautiful modern palettes are created to cater to more modern consumers, however, some sellers might market them as vintage! So being aware of the color palettes is important when you are after an authentic vintage rug.
