Vintage Moroccan Chiadma Carpet CA11

This graphic vintage Moroccan Chiadma features large scale lozenges with seemingly endless reverberations surrounding a central cross form. The echoed chains of diamonds, stepped motifs, and checkers create an eye dazzling effect. Side borders filled with varying combinations of motifs frame the piece. Knotted in poppy red, terracotta, salmon, pale yellow, charcoal grey, brown, and an intriguing shock of saffron. 100% wool with a time aged patina.

This Arabized Berber tribe resides in the Haouz coastal region of Western Morocco from Essaouira to Safi. It is a sub-tribe of the Rehamna Berber tribe north of Marrakech. The carpets of this tribe typically have yellowish orange or red ground, which once would have been dyed with traded cochineal. Motifs and compositions are urban influenced, including a unique mixture of medallions and borders, and are sometimes blended with individual creative interpretations and local elements.
