Vintage Moroccan Hassira Carpet HS01

Reminiscent of many Middle Atlas flat weaves, this Hassira takes on a more intricate motif system than other examples we have found. The color choices and lozenge network identify this carpet as Beni M'Guild, with deep plum, purple and indigo wool creating the base colors while light green, red, orange, and pink add accents throughout. Skillfully executed with fine detail and color selection. Woven with halfa, a local grass, with wool for the motifs. Recommended for indoor dry use only.
