This is a vintage Berber rug from the Middle Atlas Mountains in Morocco. Such carpets were never intended to appear on the commercial market; they were intended to be used in homes by Berber families. Only natural dyes were used and wool sourced locally and their creation. Over the years, more than half a century later, the intricate design remained preserved only in part creating an nearly ghostly effect (half a rug; half a ghost). This rug is symbolic of the condition of the nomadic cultures in North Africa; almost gone for ever
