Vintage Moroccan Beni Sadden Carpet BS12

This vintage Beni Sadden features a more intricate approach to weavings from this tribe. The overall symmetrical lozenge network is filled with and surrounded by numerous Berber symbols including eight pointed stars, arrow forms, crosses, and X motifs. Stepped lozenge borders frame the composition. Woven in a faded brown and charcoal on an ivory ground. 100% wool with some pile loss and wear, consistent for a carpet of this age.
