Berber textile 2.8x5.6feet / 85x170cm

I could tell you a whole story about this vintage textile but the truth is it is the first time I come accross something like this! I fell in love at first sight with it!

This piece of textile is made of wool with cotton designs some would call naive all over it: you can spot plenty of berber symbols including a fibula (a berber jewellery).

Main color is a light beige (neutral wool color) with colorful designs. On the top part, unexpected relief lines break the linear composition of the whole textile.

Definitely a colorful berber piece that would look great framed and hung on a wall!

Please note that this blanket is real vintage, meaning that it's been made first for private use, not directly for the market. It will come with light signs of wear, like 2 or 3 stains that won't go away (see picture #5). That said it's in lovely condition as you can see on the pictures attached!

Pictures were taken in my bright and all white studio in Marrakech, using outside light coming from large windows aside (no use of extra artificial light). Colors are accurate. Please take time to check all detailed pictures.
