Vintage Moroccan Rug BB6169 8'2" × 11'0"

This circa-1940 vintage Moroccan rug features a boldly minimal all over design of intersecting beige lines against a field of striking abrashed crimson. The use of color and minimalism contribute to a unique tribal quality in the vintage carpet. Moroccan rugs have typically been woven by tribal peoples for their utility rather than for decoration. These vintage carpets experienced a growth in popularity in the West when mid-century modern designers such as Le Corbusier paired the thick piled Berber rugs with their minimalist furniture. Many of these Berber carpets are woven by the Beni Ourain peoples from the Rif Mountains near the city of Taza in northern Morocco. Colors vary from neutral shades to bright, stand-out hues, with designs ranging from geometric simplicity to free-flowing abstraction. The primitivist feel of many Moroccan carpets makes them attractive to modernist collectors.
