Vintage Berber Moroccan Rug, 6'07 x 12'08 From Esmaili Rugs Collection. Whether its used as an accent or powerfully used as a lead color in an interior space, this charismatic Moroccan rug is bold and fashionably on point. Notice how the diamond motifs highlight the intensely saturated and abrashed field. Created by the Berber Tribes of Morocco and part of North Africa's renowned indigenous tribe weaving, this copacetic beauty is prized for its exciting, abstract and modern designs. While they display some of the same aesthetic tendencies previously celebrated by modern artists, they are indeed tribal compositions which have played importance to the Berber people for centuries. With its well-balanced proportions combined with folk art creativity make this a perfect representation of primitive tribal design. 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 weavers 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 rugs 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. The underestimated level of detail seen in these rural carpets highlight the authentic and archaic spirit of tribal art. It is stylish and refreshing!
