Vintage Moroccan Zemmour Carpet ZM02
An interesting example of a vintage Zemmour, this carpet has a natural ivory ground with black motifs and a hint of red in the warp threads. A symmetrical grid contains horizontal rows of classic Berber symbols including eight-pointed stars, floral motifs, Hamsa (camel track), twelve-pointed stars, lozenges, and checker motifs. Vertical chains of lozenges and crosses form protection borders along both selvedges. A very low pile lends a precise graphic quality to the piece. 100% wool.
