Vintage Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Circa: Mid-20th Century – Equally rustic and modern, this mid-century modern vintage Moroccan rug is a splendid example of vintage rugs and designs that incorporate tribal art and ancient symbols. Deeply influenced by the folk art of Morocco, this vintage shag rug represents the designs and the traditions of the region and at times the people who created each individual piece. The warm ivory ground is dotted with an endless series of symbols that are intimately associated with Morocco’s culture. Zigzagging snake motifs, cruciform X symbols and bold color blocks dot the field while incorporating an assortment of bright hues that complement the mid-century color palette miraculously well. Even rectilinear variants of the arthrodpodan Tamazight symbol are depicted. This simple motif within this vintage Moroccan rug is a profound representation of Berber tribal culture and the ancient Amazigh language.
