High Atlas Morocco
Circa Mid 20th Century
The Ait Ouaouzguite BerBers are the entry point for Persian and Afghan Tribal sensibilities. Distinct identifiable colouring and commonly seen angular motifs being the commonalities.
A further departure from most other BerBer rugs, and similarity with the Persian is the high altitude wool that gains a deep shine with age.
This is classic Ait Ouaouzguite, glistening as liquid gold.
