Vintage Moroccan Aït Ouaouzguite Carpet AO08

This Aït Ouaouzguite flat weave is a colorful minimalist example. A central vertical undulating band shifts back and forth, creating a sense of movement to the piece. A soft palette of warm yellow, bright orange, celadon green, sky blue, faded lavender, light pink and other colors lends a cheerful presence. Constructed entirely of mixed recycled fibers, mostly cotton.
