Vintage Tribal Moroccan Colorful Handwoven Rug BB5135 4'4" × 9'10" $8,000
Some oriental carpets and Moroccan rugs for sale are just as discernable and individualistic as fingerprints. The differences in weaving techniques or artistic style visuals may almost be imperceptible, but they are there. This Moroccan runner antique rug is of typical style design in that there are no centralized medallion patterns or motifs. Also missing is a typical field, quadrant corner brackets, a guard border or illustrative main border.
This vintage area rug has an open field of irregular bands and layers of checkered design block shapes. The color scheme of the block shapes is moodier. Brown, blue, tan and light green blocks are highlighted by the inclusion of stark red block squares. The top layer of this runner rug has a tree-bark brown colored border. The bottom of the rug features sparsely spaced and colorful fringes.
From versatile flatweaves to shaggy hand-knotted area rugs or runners, Moroccan rugs are both decorative and functional. They are valued for their technical qualities, expert use of fibers, great tensile strength, and abrasion resistance. Without a doubt, the original tribal Moroccan rugs from the Doris Leslie Blau collection bring character and a touch of worldliness to an interior.
