Vintage Purple Moroccan Rug 45201
This vintage rug from Morocco features ancient protection symbols based on long-standing superstitions and rendered in a vibrant mid-century color palette. In the traditional Moroccan style, this vintage rug makes masterful use of simple geometric elements to create a series of delightful abstract patterns imbued with secondary symbols. Ladder-like comb or finger motifs ascend up the field creating a vertical counter-change pattern between the neighboring elements. Cruciform hac motifs featured in the negative space between each deeply notched hourglass are one of many important symbols used to neutralize the effects of the evil eye by dividing the glances into four easily-managed pieces. Flat-woven ends and the contrasting combination of fuchsia, orange, chartreuse and kohl black give this vintage purple Moroccan rug a modern and distinctly Moroccan appearance.
