It is woven in the characteristic mixed technique of flatwoven and knotted sections. Such rugs are known as "lamel ni boli" in Morocco, which translates as “cover with knots”. – Very good condition.

    The Feiija tribe live in the extreme south of Morocco close to the Saharan border. Meticulously and regularly woven, the design of this rug displays a strikingly extreme degree of abstraction: four thin yellow lines create the outlines of large empty diamonds on the black-brown ground, with four small diamonds in red and yellow accentuating the central axis. – Original finishes all around, signs of age and wear, several thin spots.

    The pile rugs of the Ben Ouarain tribe are characterised by their abstract designs, usually woven in no more than two colours. In this old and, in terms of visual effect, particularly impressive example, brown parallel lines combine into a vertical grid which changes into an informal diamond lattice in the lower section of the white field. – Original finishes all around, slight signs of age and wear.

    A coarsely woven rug by the Haouz or Rehamna tribes who live in the foothills of the High Atlas west of Marrakesh. The dark brown warps and serrated side finishes consist of goat hair. The abstract design of geometric motifs is not based on a fixed concept, but is randomly arranged in the vermilion field, creating a decidedly spontaneous effect. – Original finishes all around, good condition.

    This narrow red-ground cotton textile is one of two central design bands from a textile originally in four panels – two design bands and two striped borders. It displays an elaborately woven design of six rows placed one above the other, each containing four stylised human figures, which is known as "bong midang" (war boat on a journey). At the top and bottom, borders of finely drawn geometric symbols separate the central section from the long end panels which are empty red spaces, except for one horizontal design stripe running across their centres. Among the Iban people, textiles of the pua sungkit type played an important role in headhunting ceremonies. The heads of killed people were wrapped in such cloths prior to mummification which was performed later. – Good condition. Mounted onto a black fabric and fixed to a wooden frame.
