Vintage Moroccan Geometric Green Handmade Wool Kilim Rug BB5239 5'1" × 12'10" $12,000
This antique Moroccan kilim vintage round rug is a fine study in abstract geometrics, intricate knot designs and traditional oriental patterns occurring in colors of green, brown and beige. A kilim rug is a flat-woven – or pileless – carpet, often reversible, in which a design pattern is formed by colored weft strings being wrapped around the warp. Unique Antique Moroccan rugs and other weavings have been produced by nomads and villagers throughout the Middle East and Central Asia for centuries.
Decorative woven saddlebags, storage sacks, tent hangings, animal trappings, and floor covers have traditionally enhanced important aspects of daily life, and are genuine expressions of tribal culture. The geometric motifs in these antique tribal antique oriental rugs for sale and weavings evolved directly on the loom, with each weaver creating subtle variations that reflected their own artistic personality.
