Vintage Moroccan Marmoucha Carpet MA01
A wonderful antique Moroccan Marmoucha carpet exemplifying the rich history and symbolism found in Berber arts. This rare find narrates through a complex network of classic Berber symbols a story of feminine beauty combined with an undercurrent of masculine strength. A warm time faded patina includes a palette of crimson red, deep burgundy, fig, apricot, pale turquoise, and ivory. The short woolen fibers are knotted tightly, creating a lower pile construction with a dense compact hand. 100% wool.
