To view available rugs and art, please go to the SHOP section in the main menu.


Eye-catching old Berber rug from Morocco with a large hooked diamond medallion, and four camels (or brontosaurus perhaps). Wonderful motif, very unusual, with loads of detail and character. The red field was hard to capture in the photos. Not crimson. Other colors include olive, ivory, and orange.

Woven from 100% wool. Pile condition is good with some normal wear. No holes or real problems. A little diffusion of the yellow gold (saffron?) in the border. These Moroccan tribal pieces often use saffron to create a distinctive color not seen in Turkish and Persian rugs.

Original ends and side cords — which are in 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.

Exact is size is 8 ft. 6 in. by 5 ft. 4 in. 1960s. Traditional Berber diamonds and vivid bold colors. Most likely woven in the Atlas Mountains.

Price is $475. Shipping is $39.
