Mid-century Moroccan Shag 9
6'3" x 11'1"
Archeo is proud to offer vintage, Berber (also known as Beni Ourain) rugs to our gallery. Hand-knotted by the original inhabitants of Africa, Berber rugs are known for their double knot construction that results in a thick, durable shag. Sourced by visits to tribal villages, these rugs would have been part of a woman's personal dowry, not made for sale or for tourists. Each rug features a personal style, such as this one with its "broken" pattern along the right side.
