Unusual Marmoucha Berber Moroccan Rug

About

A great old Moroccan Berber rug from the Middle Atlas Mountains, featuring a very unusual design, a unique and refined interpretation of the Classic diamond grid. Though it resembles the work of the famed Beni Ouarain, it was probably woven by the Marmoucha, a neighboring tribe. It's dense weave, excellent wool quality, wonderful patina all indicate great age. A very impressive and genuinely old example of Berber art.
