Vintage Moroccan Zemmour Carpet ZM04

Waves of vibrant pinks drift over a network of intricate lozenges, forming a field all about texture and color. Hot pinks, faded salmon, charcoal, and ivory transport an otherwise subtle composition to another level. Symmetrical borders frame this vintage Moroccan Zemmour. 100% wool knotted with a low dense pile.

This tribe in the southern Middle Atlas region has a varied history being on the main trade route from Timbuktu to Marrakech. The usual color palette of the Zemmour tribe has a deep red background using the madder root for the dye commonly traded in the local souk markets. From time to time the designs of the tribe would take on a neighboring influence.
