Doris Leslie Blau Collection Oversized Modern Moroccan Design Flat-Weave Rug N10871 16'0" × 24'0" $48,000
Moroccan tribal craft belongs to one of the most recognizable and beautiful in the world. Its power lies in the combination of simple and honest artistic expression with the lore of entire generations of weavers. Moroccan tribal rugs were “discovered” by the mid-20th century Modernists who fell for their whimsical charm and effortless elegance, and they have been an indispensible feature of the most fashionable interiors ever since.
This oversized modern flat weave builds upon the centuries-old Moroccan weaving tradition. The piece is rendered in two shades of brown – lighter and darker – which constitutes a composition pleasant to the eye, timeless and truly versatile. The pattern itself represents diamonds – the most popular and, at the same time, important oriental rug motif which is believed to provide protection against the Evil Eye. Everything is finished with a lovely trim that adds to the overall appeal of this Moroccan rug.
Next to traditional-inspired design, the oversized flat weave may boast of refined workmanship. Carefully hand-woven of the finest wool in accordance with the craft, it is durable, resilient and relatively light. Provided minimum care, it will withstand years of usage even in demanding conditions without any signs of wear.
Moroccan rugs, in their variety of textures, colors, and designs have stood the test of time. They are a classic staple in both classic and modern interiors. Our modern Moroccan rugs are handmade by artisans in small, specialized workshops, following the centuries-old tradition. They are handmade of natural undyed wool or of wool colored with natural dyes. Their designs are either of vintage tribal inspiration or traditional with an original twist, designs exclusive to Doris Leslie Blau.
