Vintage Moroccan Rehamna Carpet RH09

This fantastic vintage Moroccan Rehamna is inspired by the fertile Haouz plain landscape, with a random composition of abstract Berber symbolism distributed across its field. A very unique color palette includes maize and saffron yellow, grass green, faded cerulean blue, warm grey, black, and ivory. All wool pile on a cotton warp.

Rehamna

This Arab Maqil tribe with Arabised Berbers lives on the Haouz plains north of Marrakech. Rehamna carpets are typically either a monochromatic ground field of red/orange (sometimes with small motifs), while others can take on a more abstract style, borrowing from the urban carpets of Rabat. The latter approach often exhibit motifs including undulating lines, lozenges, geometric triangles or squares, chessboard, and agricultural elements including animals and plant forms.
