Mystery Textile Number 8
This looks Moroccan as well.
The green does it.
Could be natural. Looking again. If you didn't mess with the colours, it must be natural.
The black and white combination.
Kilim? Very pliable?
no cigar but a clue
i have not messed with the colors . . . i am not sure that i would know how to even if i wanted to :>}
that aint the answer . . . but keep trying . . . new images by mid week
dont give up hope with the other puzzles sometimes CLUE CLUE CLUE an inadvertant comment is made that can throw light on a harder puzzle
THAT WAS A CLUE
It's a pity this isn't a kilim.
The older, simple, Moroccan kilims can be very beautiful and primitive.
But ok. This looks like a Quizquit as well.
But this one has a nice extra ending.
It's a rug. Size 220x150cm?
Maybe this one's a bit older?
Because the other one seems more oriental style.
This one seems more Moroccan.
If not a rug.........A prayer rug?
In Turkish style?
CONGRADULATIONS TO VINCENT
you have got it . . . it is a high atlas rug . . . i will measure it later . . . the ending with the green IS A CLUE FOR ANOTHER PUZZLE
i think it is second quarter twentieth century because of where i found it and when the people immagrated here from morrocco . . . . there are experts out there on maghreb rubs who might want to pitch in.
in the meantime
all honor to vincent
