Vintage Moroccan Aït Bou Ichaouen Carpet TS29
A vintage Aït Bou Ichaouen with an unusual interpretation of the traditional lozenge motif. The network is constructed of irregular female diamond motifs filled with male forms (cross, tent and bar). Woven in a unique color story of fire red/orange, faded magenta, turquoise, light blue and charcoal grey. Berber carpets often exhibit a correlation to much older forms of expression found in cave paintings and ancient rock carvings, evident in this example. Finished with bands of flat weave at both ends, 100% wool.
