North African Vintage Moroccan Kilim Rug, Country of Origin: Morocco, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century – Drawn in a bold, graphic style, this vintage mid-century modern flat woven kilim rug, a kilim weave Moroccan rug from Northern Africa, depicts a strong pattern of walnut brown and ivory stripes that is embellished with tiny latticework fences, almond-shaped windows and comb motifs with extended fingers. This foundation of broad stripes is abstract, expressive yet pleasantly restrained. The limited selection of colors and the fairly restricted assortment of decorative motifs and embellishments embolden the strong striped pattern. Tiny hash-mark details highlight the graphic intersections between the high-contrast colors and create an applique-like effect that adds to the decorative qualities of each motif. This vintage Moroccan Kilim rug is a stunning example of the country’s free-spirited style and graphic design tendencies that result in expressive, modern compositions which were created in the High Atlas Mountains of Northern Africa.
