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 self contained panels that alternate between pile and flatware construction. This type of construction is known as "Glaoui". The patterning and palette work to showcase the central panel which features an evil eye rendered in blue, red and saffron. A perimeter border, one of three, effectively accents the center by utilizing the same palette.
This rug is in great condition and has very little wear given its age, as pictured.
