Mid-20th century Moroccan Solid Purple Handwoven Wool Rug BB7353 4'10" × 8'7" $4,500
This vintage Moroccan rug was created circa 1950. Although made in the traditional way, it is distinguished by a very modern look. The whole field is covered with a shaggy purple-and-beige pile. The backing is pitch black, so are the tassels which put the finishing touch on the composition.
The rug was made by hand of high-quality wool in accordance with centuries-old techniques. Careful making ensured its durability – the rug’s charm is alive and well as time has taken nearly no toll on it. Provided minimal care, it will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear.
From versatile flatweaves to shaggy hand-knotted area rugs or runners, Moroccan rugs are both decorative and functional. They are valued for their technical qualities, expert use of fibers, great tensile strength, and abrasion resistance. Without a doubt, the original tribal Moroccan rugs from the Doris Leslie Blau collection bring character and a touch of worldliness to an interior.
