Vintage Moroccan Aït Seghrouchen Carpet AS01

A great antique example of a Moroccan Aït Serrouchen carpet with wool dyed from natural sources including pomegranate, indigo and carob root. The hues have faded over the past 70-80 years, providing a wonderful aged patina and depth. A simplified Berber message is spoken, but an oriental influence from the east is also evident. There are a few areas of restoration and some fringe loss, consistent for a carpet of this age. 100% wool.

Aït Seghrouchen

This Zenata Berber tribe lives in the valley of Immouzer high above the city of Fez. Having such close proximity to a large city and its local souk, the carpets of this tribe can take on a variety of influences. The weft threads are almost always a dark black to brown wool and the weavers knot the colorful carpets, tazerbit, from the back.
