Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Rirt Carpet BR05

Devoid of any pattern, this vintage Beni M'Rirt focuses on subtle texture and simplicity. A melange grey/brown field is knotted in a mixture of goat hair and sheep's wool, creating a more coarse, dense hand. A touch of color is added by the orange and magenta cotton fringe and warp. A very usable smaller size.
