Vintage Moroccan Rug Description:
A vintage handwoven wool pile antique rug, traditional Moroccan style. Rustic geometric design in warm colors on a natural wool background.
Although today we use Moroccan Rugs to bring tactile comfort and aesthetic appeal to interiors, their original purpose was warmth and insulation. The Morrocan Rugs of the Atlas Mountains were hand-woven using the sheep’s wool provided by nomadic herds. And the vintage area rugs provided thick bedding, crucial for the inhospitable climate, for the nomadic people. The cream and neutral colors common to Moroccan rugs for sale sold en mass today harken back to a time when dyes and colors were by no means a priority.
