This extremely rare, loop-woven Rug displays the classic, simply motifs of traditional Berber patterns, but in an unusual example of a looped weave, as opposed to the common shag style. The loop style of weaving requires an incredible amount of skill to achieve and give a unique and contemporary appeal to the piece.
Moroccan Rug weaving began with the Berbers, who were the indigenous people of North Africa and inhabited Morocco before it was invaded by Arabs in the seventh century. These rugs are usually in bold colors and animated patterns, and the designs are almost always geometric or tribal. The colors and patterns are distinct according to the tribe that wove it. In the twentieth-century, the Moroccan Rugs are widely collected in the West because of its unique tribal patters.
The wool of these rugs is plush and soft to the touch, the stripes woven in black wool and in contrast to the ivory wool ground.
