Vintage Moroccan Beni Alaham Carpet BA01

A fantastic white giant, this vintage Beni Alaham carpet is woven in a fine, dense wool with an exceptional patina and silky hand. Knotted in a charcoal black wool on an ivory ground, the minimal large lozenge pattern appears to extend beyond the length of the carpet. A fine band of flat weave finishes both ends. Time worn fringe adds to the character of the piece. 100% wool.
