Contemporary Berber kilim. This rug comes from a wife/husband team—she weaves, he sells her rugs. They live in a small village called Merirt in the High Atlas Mountains. The pattern combines traditional Berber symbols (the ‘eyes’ which ward off evil spirits) with a pattern that was inspired by the timbered ceilings of her small rural home. I have never seen this pattern elsewhere—it’s her own creation!
Material 100% Wool
Origin Merirt region
