Vintage Bold Moroccan Tribal Geometric Orange Area Rug BB6164 5'0" × 13'0" $9,000
This circa-1940 vintage Moroccan rug exhibits a rich variety of traditional kilim motifs and instantly makes you fall in love with its irresistible charm. It features a striking all-over design of multicolored geometric shapes in shades of dusty orange, dark slate gray, brick red and pale green, contained within alternating columns. Each shape has its distinctive function and is supposed to provide protection or bring a particular blessing to a household or a person. The prevailing stars are known as ‘Yıldız’ and stand for happiness and fertility.
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.
