About

Magnificent tribal Vintage Moroccan rug, country of origin / rug type: Morocco, circa date: Mid–20th century. Size: 5 ft 5 in x 12 ft 3 in (1.65 m x 3.73 m) This mid century vintage Moroccan tribal rug has an appeal that developed long before the introduction of minimalist, modern, or postmodern design. Its simple use of color highlights the seemingly random chocolate brown colored lines that make up the entirety of the design. Each of these vintage rugs from Morocco tells a story that the weaver wished to incorporate into the design pattern of the rug. The ancient language has been all but lost, but the beauty and appeal of these Moroccan rugs is timeless. The folk art rugs produced by the Moroccan Berber tribes of Morocco are known for their lustrous feel and high quality that will last for decades. This example, which is actually a Moroccan Beni Ourain rug, has an asymmetrical abstract quality that many modern designers have tried to imitate, but can rarely achieve the primitive feel of the design. This tribal rug is an excellent antique that was made in the fine traditions of the Berber people dating back thousands of years. Many of these Moroccan tribes still live as they did centuries earlier, making these artistically woven rugs a symbol of ancient history, yet that still appeal to modern taste. The natural fibers and simple colors of this ivory colored tribal vintage Moroccan rug make it versatile and a focal point for a range of styles from earthy and organic to Scandinavian modern. The minimalist design of this vintage tribal rug from Morocco focuses on form and line rather than color. This is an excellent choice for adding an organic touch and tribal feel to any contemporary home or office. This Moroccan vintage rug connects to the tribal traditions from which it came, but yet has a completely modern aesthetic and appeal.
