Stunning old vintage tribal rug from Morocco. Based on colors and motif, this one is probably from the village of Rehamna. 100% natural wool with long tassels from the braided warp on one end (they are usually only on one end). 1940s. (There is an old faded export tag that looks like it can be translated to 1951 in the Gregorian calendar.)

The reds have muted from sunlight and aging on the top side. (see last photo which shows back folded over front) Floating asymmetrical diamonds and geometric icons against the red field. This is heavy and thick but a softer supple weave lacking rigidity– so not ideal for a high traffic area. Similar in respects to the traditional tribal Qashqai gabbeh rugs of Iran.

Professionally washed a couple of years ago and not used since being cleaned.

Sad to let this one go from my collection but have to find homes for some of these fabulous old carpets. Enchanted art for your floor! 10 ft. 8 in. by 5 ft. 5 in. (includes tassels in length).

Price is $750.   Shipping is $43 within the continental U.S.
