Alpujarran rugs were domestic items generally woven for personal use, a tradition that remained in Southern Spain (the muslims stayed for 700 years in Spain). Often they were woven as part of the dowry as it could be in this case . Normally there are Alpujarran rugs with motives influenced by the Norther African aesthetics and others, as in the case of this piece, with local folk motives . Using a restricted colour palette, coarse looped pile on a woven foundation, woven in two parts and stiched together. Minimalist and utilitarian, creating an intensely rich and personal narrative – intended for the home and never for sale. Linen ground with looped design in wool. In very good overall condition, given the fact that most of them are damaged, due to the fact that were every day domestic items, including the original fringes. Of great ethnographic value as there are not many of this age that survived to our days.
