Vintage Moroccan Rehamna Carpet RH25

A striking vintage Moroccan Rehamna carpet featuring lozenges that distort as they drift across one end of the field, culminating in a mirage like cluster of abstracted motifs at the opposing end. Checker forms emerge in the background, undulating throughout. An artful palette of pinks, poppy, faded turquoise, celadon, violet, dark brown, and charcoal further make this a standout piece. All wool pile on a multicolored cotton warp.

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.
