Moroccan Floor Rug
Beautiful Red Kilim Carpet

This listing is for a gorgeous antique Moroccan Berber kilim rug I purchased in Morocco many years ago. These rugs are reputable as dowry rugs, as they used to give them away with their daughters. Stories also tell tales of daughters weaving stories into these rugs to send back to their parents to let them know whether they are being treated properly by their new husband and his family.

Very large and long at 5.3' x 10.3' (64" x 133")

This rug is in EXCELLENT shape with no signs of hanging, restoration, or damage. The main color is deep oxblood red, with white, black, green, and orange lines woven through. Wool-on-wool hand knotted construct.

There's a slight staining in a small part of the rug that's visible in the lower left corner of the second photo (from use over many years).

If you'd like to make pillow covers with this, you can easily make 20-25 pillow covers from this, depending on the size. Handmade kilim pillow covers sell from $100-350, so you can make good money from it.

I have many other kilims and have no room for this which has been sitting in storage.
