Vintage Moroccan Rug BB5761

Price: $6,000

This circa-1940 traditional vintage Moroccan wool pile vintage area rug consists of a simple field of natural wool color surrounded by a thin brown border. The stark minimalism of the vintage carpet makes it an intriguing find for modernist collectors. Moroccan antique rugs have typically been woven by tribal peoples for their utility rather than for decoration.

These vintage carpets experienced a growth in popularity in the West when mid-century modern designers such as Le Corbusier paired the thick piled Berber vintage moroccan rugs with their minimalist furniture. Many of these Berber carpets are woven by the Beni Ourain peoples from the Rif Mountains near the city of Taza in northern Morocco. Colors vary from neutral shades to bright, stand-out hues, with designs ranging from geometric simplicity to free-flowing abstraction. The primitivist feel of many Moroccan beautiful rugs makes them attractive to modernist collectors.
