Vintage Moroccan Rug

About

An extraordinary hand-knotted woollen carpet from the Aït Bou Ichaouen tribe. This seductive pattern and brazen color combination resonates far beyond the weavings of traditional Berber arts and is on par with abstract color field painting and earlier forms of abstract art. As one of the most remote Berber tribes located between the high Altas Range and the edge of the Sahara. The hand-knotted carpets from the Ait Bou Ichaouen remained unknown to the carpet world until the 1990s with the publication of 'Ait Bou Ichaouen, Weavings of a Nomadic Berber Tribe'. These carpets are some of the rarest, and most sought after pieces by collectors.
