Vintage Moroccan Beni Alaham Carpet BA15

This Beni Alaham features a large scale lozenge motif holding an intriguing central medallion. Clusters of V-formations and checker motifs lend an architectural reference, with chains of ladders floating across the upper field. A rather ornamental jewelry-esque quality, yet with a quite refined and restrained feel. Woven in a warm ivory, brown, and salmon pink with low pile and fine construction. 100% wool.
