ABOUT MOROCCAN RUGS:
Moroccan rugs date back centuries. They were once used for protection against cold weather, but now they are mainly used as a part of house luxury. The art of rug weaving is passed down from generation to generation, carrying on a thousand-year-old tradition. Rugs from different regions of Morocco vary in style as artisans include local folklore, symbolism and weaving techniques into their rug designs.
Moroccan rural carpets are handmade and usually homemade by women. they are still an active industry in some rural areas of the country. Many Berber families earn their primary income from building-up carpets manually and selling them in local markets, merchants and tourists. The traditional carpets differ from the modern ones.
ABOUT THIS RUG
An exquisite 1980's vintage piece from Marmoucha, the neigbouring village to Beni Ouarain. Similar in style to Beni Ouarain rugs, which are surprisingly modern looking, featuring minimalist designs of diamonds, triangles or naïve figures in black on a white or cream background. Their abstract simplicity made them attractive to famous modernist architects in the 1920's and 1930's, such as Le Corbusier and Alvar Aalto. They are considered to be the most prestigious rugs in Morocco, made from the very finest wool.
