Vintage Moroccan Beni Ouarain Carpet BO_148
A very unusual mid century Beni Ouarain with creative interpretation of traditional motifs. This example exhibits a central vertical chain of complete and incomplete lozenges surrounded by reverberating lines, creating a sense of movement. Multicolored triangular chains border both selvedges, forming protective symbolism. A row of chevrons provides a break from the main lozenge theme, finished with an interesting zig zag band formed from lozenges. Knotted in a palette of faded poppy red, green/grey, light grey, dark brown, and charcoal on a warm ivory ground. 100% wool with a time aged patina.
