This Ait Ouaouzguite rug was woven in the High Atlas mountains of Morocco during the middle of the 20th century.
It features a series of panels with a prominent central panel that showcases a large diamond on a brown ground. The panels alternate between pile and flatware construction known as "Glaoui". Alternating X's and burdock symbols have been woven in the the flat woven areas. The whole utilizes a more restrained palette of saffron, brown, red, ivory and gray. The sides of the rugs feature lovely tufts and the top and bottom of the rug are embellished with a couple inches of brocaded skirting which can also be seen in the flatwoven panels.
This rug is in great condition and has very little wear given its age, as pictured.
