About

Magnificent Plush Vintage Tribal Berber Moroccan Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Morocco, Circa Date: Mid – 20th Century. Size: 6 ft 3 in x 10 ft 6 in (1.9 m x 3.2 m) There is something unique and special about mid 20th century vintage Moroccan Berber carpets and this example is no exception. The simple design of this captivating rug from Morocco gives it an abstract quality, while keeping to its tribal roots. The true beauty of this vintage mid century modern rug not only lies in its magnificent color but in the story that it has to tell. The Berber rug makers are a traditional tribal people who wove special design symbols into their carpets to represent an ideal, or tell a story. Many of these stories have been lost through the ages, and some of them have changed. But the real fascination with these Moroccan rugs lies in the fact that, at one time in their history, someone knew exactly what they meant. Red is a favorite color among the Moroccan people who are known for using vibrant and jewel tone colors in everything from their buildings to their furnishings. Red is the main color of the Moroccan flag and stands for bravery, valor, strength, and the ability to overcome hardships. Many of the meanings of the other symbols have changed over the years such as the distinctive tree, camel, rooster, and coffee urn. The motifs in this plush vintage tribal Berber Moroccan rug are simply executed and are understated, compared to the overall size of the rug. Even though they are small in scale, they stand out as the focal point of the design. Executed in warm ivory tones, against the fiery reddish orange, the motifs inspire the viewer to contemplate the deep meaning that they must have had for the weaver. The ends of the vintage shag rug are highlighted by a distinctive border weave that is executed by pattern, rather than color. The primitive, tribal nature of the tribal Berber Moroccan rug stands out as it appears that two different colors of red were used in the carpet. It is as if the weaver ran out of one color and had to switch to what was readily available. This rug would make an excellent addition to any interior decor style from traditional to modern.
