Moroccan Kilim, Morocco, Mid-Twentieth Century – This stunning vintage rug from Morocco showcases a bold, highly decorative assortment of colorful mulberry-tone stripes interspersed with pile accents and hash-mark dividers. Saffron and celadon details invigorate the striped flat-weave pattern and appear in the colorful pile accents that form lateral stripes and a decorative series of branching Tree of Life-style figures and dangling earring motifs that traverse the composition vertically. Minute dotted tufts of pile form subtle linear patterns that jump off of the berry-tone stripes. These irregular figures meander across the field and create secondary patterns by passing through the striped background. Like many iconic Moroccan carpets, this stunning kilim is alive with originality, creativity and esoteric traditions. Each decorative figure has warmth and a human energy that adds an inviting touch to modern and minimalist interiors.
