We are a boutique shop who pride ourselves on offering hand selected batches of high quality pieces. Due to the nature of our business and unique inventory, all sales are final. If you have any questions please email us at TheElegantNomad@gmail.com
Vintage and Authentic:
Our rugs are all hand-selected from their country of origin. These are handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces; many of which are several decades old. Most of these rugs were not initially woven for sale, but to be used in the home for generations.
Our inventory consists of handmade vintage artifacts, many of which have lived a life prior to purchase. Edges that aren't straight, natural fading and small repairs are typical characteristics, while additional imperfections and wear patterns may be evident. We believe these visual elements only enhance their story of being truly unique treasures. They have stood the test of time. These items are stunning artistic masterpieces for the home.
Many Moroccan rugs are sized differently than standard American area rugs. They are hand woven on looms which are limited in width, and created for the unique architecture of Morocco. Grouping furniture around your rug, or layering it over a larger, more neutral base rug are a couple strategies to introduce a Moroccan piece into your decor.

Our rugs are all composed of natural fibers. Most of our pieces are woven with 100% live wool, while some incorporate elements of cotton, torn cloth (Azilal) and goat hair. This latter material is much less common, and specifically used by tribes in southern regions near the Sahara Desert.
Rug Care and Maintenance:
To elongate the life of a rug, we recommend several things.
1) Purchase and use a rug pad.
2) Routinely vacuum (depending on usage); use suction vacuum in a V motion to minimize agitation of natural fibers.
3) If spilled upon, spot clean immediately. If treatment with cleaning aid is necessary, test a small portion of a corner first.
4) Professionally clean as necessary.
5) Rotate rug once or twice a year to balance sun exposure and traffic patterns.
