Moulouya Valley Maalema- Very Rare Beni Bou Yahi female rug

$5,800.00

  This exceptionally rare Beni Bou Yahi (or Beni Jelidassen?) rug is a wonderfully unique piece that rarely comes to market, as most remain in private and Museum collections.  Mixing inspiration from master weaver (Maalem) rugs with a vibrant spirit this female rug is an exceptional and truly unique piece.  Is quite possibly a  Maalema (female master weaver) rug as it shows a weaving excellence often only found in commissioned male master weaver rugs, but with a distinctly female style.  A wonderful baroque beauty from the Moulouya Valley.
