Vintage Moroccan Carpet
Vintage Moroccan Carpet Description:
A flat-woven rug with geometric design, crafted by a Moroccan tribe in the mid-twentieth century. The raw material of this rug is black or white sheep's wool, used as is, with a red thread dyed most likely with madder which provides brilliant reds and is native of Morocco. Moroccan rugs provide designers with timeless, unique, and functional works of art for the modern-day home. Each rug is a primitive abstraction that is completely original to the weaver of the rug. Recognizing the beauty of these rugs in the modern environment were such notable designers and architects as Charles and Ray Eames, Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright.
