This contemporary custom fragment Moroccan pile runner rug is hand-knotted in wool and features an all-over design of diamond shapes in sharp brown, with warm brown spots against a cream field. The classic runner style interacts with the pile and minimalist pattern for a multifaceted design of texture, shape and color. Minimalist and modern, the contemporary carpet is simultaneously evocative of tribal designs characteristic of vintage Moroccan rugs of the past century. Moroccan rugs have typically been woven by tribal peoples for their utility rather than for decoration. The Berber carpets were usually created by the Beni Ourain peoples from the Rif Mountains near the city of Taza in northern Morocco. As this contemporary carpet is woven by hand using quality wool, it bears a uniqueness in style, value and longevity that makes it stand out from the average mass-produced textiles.
