Eye-catching vintage Berber rug from Morocco with an array of diamonds and icons, forming a scintillating motif. As with many of the tribal Moroccan pieces from the Atlas Mountain region, there are tassels added on one end only.
Overall excellent condition with very minor wear. Natural saffron or turmeric dyes were used to create the deep yellow gold colors. Additional colors are crimson, ivory, green, and soft blue accents. Exact size is 10 ft. 3 in. by 4 ft. 10 in. 1960s.
Woven from 100% wool. Original ends and side cords — which are in very good condition. Vintage tribal Moroccan rugs are less common and highly sought after by collectors, dealers, and designers.
This rug has a soft woolen weave suitable for tribal nomads. The rug can be easily unrolled for a celebration, a meal, or to serve as the floor of a tent. In preparation for a move, the rug can be quickly folded and packed away.
This rug is perhaps not a suitable choice for a high traffic area of a home. It would work well in a bedroom or office. Add pillows and this rug could serve as a nomadic enclave for visitors to sit on the floor and share a meal.
