Vintage Moroccan Aït Ouaouzguite Carpet AO03

A minimalist flat weave piece, this Aït Ouaouzguite runner is work of art. Weft rows alternate in varying colors over the length of the carpet. Golden yellow, bright orange and grass green dominate the spectrum on one end, while the center portion is woven in earthy grey and brown tones. A section of metallic thread adds visual interest and depth. Constructed entirely of recycled fibers, mostly cotton.
