Vintage Moroccan Shag Rug, Country of Origin: Morocco, Circa date: Mid-20th Century – Here is an exciting vintage carpet – a mid-century Moroccan rug, woven in bright and expressive tribal style. Mid-century Moroccan shag rugs such as this carpet are admired for their cultural authenticity and bold design style, which often touch on minimalism and abstraction in a manner consistent with developments in mainstream Western twentieth century art. This particular piece is a wonderful example of the more abstract tendencies explored by the style, as it boasts a bright and vibrant tribal layout. Thick pile throughout allows for the large splotches of reds, oranges, yellows and blacks that dominate to field to interplay delightfully with one another, creating an ever-changing facade. Beautifully woven, this tribal vintage Moroccan area rug is an exciting exploration of the fundamental connections that link together tribal and abstract styles.
