Vintage Moroccan Berber Rug

About

This authentic Azilal carpet is hand-knotted with a blend of subtle browns, gray and black on a field of ivory white wool. Azilal carpets take on a very abstract and lively linear quality. The patterns woven into these carpets are a combination of tribal traditions, personal improvisation and vivid expression. Away from sedentary life, these plush piles of wool offer much more than decor for the house —nomadic tribes have used these carpets to provide both comfort and physical protection from natural elements, while their talismanic designs are said to deflect evil and encourage prosperity. 100% wool / hand-knotted Berber carpets are an essential element in homes worldwide thanks to their popularity with modernist architects and designers. From the 1930s-1960s, Alvar and Aino Aalto, Le Corbusier and Arne Jacobsen, among others, styled their interiors using the abstract rug motifs of nomadic Berber tribes. These handmade woolen carpets offer an extraordinary combination of minimalism and inventive patterns, which continues to allure people’s imagination and inspire contemporary interiors.
