Vintage Moroccan Ourika Carpet OR15

This fantastic Ourika displays a grid-like composition of abstract Berber symbols organized in horizontal bands across the field. An unusual repeat of the palm-like male parmakli motifs are joined by other random male Berber symbols. The lively palette includes bright pink, red, grass green, electric blue, turquoise, purple, golden yellow and ivory, with other accent colors. Constructed with a wool weft and cotton pile on a cotton warp, finished with flat weave bands on both ends.
