old moroccan berber high atlas carpet -- it is very unusual to find such an old Berber carpet in this pristine condition with full pile with original undamaged sides and kilim ends. The piece dates from probably the 1950s and is the work of the Zenaga Berber Group who are the most southerly High Atlas tribe where the region changes to the Pre-Sahara. The many shades of natural Henna represent joy and happiness in Berber weaving and the dye is used extensively as a cosmetic, color for ceramics and also for carpets and textiles. The excellent book "Carpets and Textiles of Morocco", published by the Washington Textile Museum in 1980, shows an example as plate 71 which corroborates the age and also shows very similar designs, motifs and border work.
