Moroccan Vintage Rug BB5903

Price: $2,000

This circa-1940 vintage Moroccan rug features a bold all-over multicolored raised pile design. The simplicity of the midcentury vintage carpet makes it at once modernist and evocative of tribal motifs. Moroccan 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 rugs with their minimalist furniture. Many of these Berber antique rugs 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 style area rugs makes them attractive to modernist collectors.
