Vintage Moroccan Guigou Carpet GG08
An excellent example of a Guigou carpet woven primarily with wool dyed from natural sources. A chevron motif is repeated throughout the piece, with opposing side borders providing two different perspectives on male protection symbology. The palette of deep plum, magenta, indigo, umber, orange, and salmon have faded over time, providing an abrashed field underlaying the motifs. Berber symbolism includes zigzags, crosses, and X-formations. 100% wool.
