20782 Vintage Moroccan Zemmour Berber Kilim Area Rug with Bohemian Tribal Style 07'04 x 10'10. This hand-woven wool vintage Moroccan Zemmour Berber Kilim rug features an all-over geometric pattern. It beautifully displays alternating rows of wide bands and stripes composed of ancient Berber Tribe symbols. This flat-weave Zemmour Kilim rug displays symbols of Burdock, Bereket, Hook, Ram's Horn, and Elibelinde. Though deceptively simple, this Classic design is steeped in Moroccan tradition. The tribal symbols of diamonds, chevrons, and X-shapes are usually thought to symbolize womanhood, conception, fertility, pregnancy, and protection. The Classic Elibelinde motif, also known as the “hands on hips” or goddess motif, is thought to represent motherhood and fertility while ram’s horns represent masculinity and power. The fertility bereket motifs that appear combine the symbols of both man and woman, often referred to as ram’s Horn and hands-on-hips motifs, into one design with a diamond in the centre. It is framed with vertical borders of repeating Elibelinde motifs. In Moroccan rugs, male motifs often appear on the outer portions of the composition, framing and enclosing the female motifs. This presentation can be seen as symbolizing fertility, as well as protection and the sanctuary of the family. Blending primitive charm, ancient symbolism and Folk-Art warmth, this vintage Moroccan kilim rug reflects generations of cultural beliefs and serves many design purposes. Well-suited for a wide range of interior styles: Tribal, Nomadic, Ethnic, Traditional, Eclectic, Modern, Mid-Century Modern, Contemporary, Industrial, Bungalow, Bohemian, Boho Chic, Primitive, Rustic, Lodge, Cabin, and Lake Tahoe.
