VINTAGE LILAC MOROCCAN RUG. 13 ft 10 in x 5 ft 8 in (4.22 m x 1.73 m).

Beautiful Vintage Geometric Lilac Moroccan Rug, Country Of Origin: Morocco, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century – Here is a beautiful vintage Moroccan rug that breaks away from traditional Moroccan designs to create something sophisticated, stunning, and new. This rug has a primarily soft, light Lilac background with a salmon-pink stripe at the top and light brown threads to create a subtle diamond pattern design. To fully appreciate this vintage Morrocan rug, it’s crucial to know the extensive history of these rugs. They have been around for a long time and have had a major impact.

In the past, Moroccan rugs were woven for bed padding and blankets. They even acted as clothes for ceremonies and everyday life. Because the Moroccan tribes were nomadic, they were consistently on the move and these rugs would also function as saddle blankets for their horses. As the years went by, major Moroccan cities were established and rose to great prominence. The very distinct Moroccan rugs were used in commerce and produced in piles because of high demand. Even now, Moroccan rugs are still popular, although styles in production have morphed.

This vintage pink Moroccan rug is an excellent example of a modern spin that still pays tribute to the classic Moroccan elements. For example, the faintly visible diamond pattern that crisscrosses across the rug is a nod to the elaborate diamond patterns found in most Moroccan carpets.

However, there are also plenty of exciting changes that make this rug stand out. At 5 feet 8 inches by 13 feet 10 inches, this vintage rug is noticeably longer than many other carpets. This makes it the perfect hallway floor decoration, but it would also work beautifully in other rooms. The rug’s texture is soft and comfortable to touch, which also makes it a great fixture in bedrooms or entertainment centers. Its light pink color scheme is classic and rejects gaudy colors that would make it difficult to integrate into a design aesthetic. Instead, the charming color choices make it a cheery addition to any room.
