About

77201, Tribal style vintage Rabat Moroccan Area rug, oversize rug, palace size carpet. This hand knotted wool vintage Moroccan Rabat rug features six superimposed stepped diamond-shaped medallions in bright lime, sunflower yellow and tomato red spread across an ivory field. A variety of Classic Anatolian symbols decorate the field between the medallions, including combs and burdocks. Combs and darts grace the corner spandrels, while stepped hexagons with diamond centers line the edges. The attractive border echoes the graphic designs of the central area and features fetter motifs in alternating colors separated by thin bars with diamond end-caps. Fetters traditionally symbolize family union, while combs, diamonds, and burdocks are seen to protect against evil. Unlike most other Moroccan rugs, Rabat city rugs exhibit Anatolian designs and influence, though it is unclear how these designs came to Morocco many centuries ago. According to Indianapolis Museum of Arts’ “The Fabric of Moroccan Life,” the women weavers of Rabat tell a legend that one day “a stork dropped into the courtyard of a house a piece of rug… whose colors and design were hitherto unknown in the land… the women weavers of the house saw it as a gift from heaven, a talisman, and a good omen, and so were inspired by it.” The people of Rabat consider wool to be as precious as gold and a variety of rituals surround the making of their rugs. They are known to be able to create bright and saturated polychromatic color schemes with a narrow palette. This vintage Rabat rug showcases these unique traditions in a striking manner, making it a statement piece that would be a fantastic addition to any interior. Rendered in variegated shades of lime, sunflower, tomato red, lavender, royal blue, and ivory. Perfect for bedroom, front room, living room, family room, den, state room, great room, game room, library, office, studio, study or formal sitting room. Well-suited for a wide range of interior styles: Traditional, Transitional, Eclectic, Modern, Mid-Century Modern, Contemporary, Rustic, Industrial, Lodge, Cabin, Bungalow, Art Deco, Arts & Crafts, Craftsman, Spanish Revival, Mission, Mediterranean, Tudor, Jacobean, Prairie School, Bauhaus, Postmodern, Tropical, Bohemian, boho chic, and Tribal. Tag on the back reads: Morocco, Rabat. Abrash. Made by the Rabat Village Women. Made in Morocco. Measures: 13'10 x 18'07.
