Berber Moroccan Rug with Tribal Flair, 06'08" x 11'06" From Esmaili Rugs Collection. Created by the women from the Berber Tribes of Morocco and North Africa's renowned indigenous tribe, this copacetic beauty is prized for its plush pile and bold red-orange color. While it displays some of the same aesthetic tendencies previously celebrated by modern artists, this Moroccan rug is indeed a tribal composition which has played importance to the Berber Tribes people for centuries. This Moroccan rug boasts a variegated field rendered in vibrant shades of red and orange with accents of muted blue and beige. As time goes by and this Moroccan rug is subjected to foot traffic, the true beauty will be exposed as the tribal symbols will gradually appear. While the patterns may seem whimsical and random, they are very significant to the rug weaver's life. The Berber women incorporate design elements from their personal experience into the rugs designs. The symbols are usually references to events and aspects of their daily life such as beliefs, birth, fertility, nature, femininity, life and spirituality. The hints of dyes that make their way into the rug's motifs and fringes have their own tale to tell. In Berber culture, the color red symbolizes strength and protection, blue symbolizes wisdom, yellow represents eternity and green stands for peace. With its well-balanced proportions combined with folk art creativity make this a perfect representation of primitive tribal design. It is stylish and refreshing!
