Our Moroccan carpets date back centuries. The tapestry rugs, which were once used for protection against cold weather, are hand woven in several regions of Morocco. The art of rug weaving is passed down from generation to generation, carrying on a thousand-year-old tradition.

Moroccan rugs from different regions of Morocco vary in style as artisans include local folklore, symbolism and weaving techniques into their rug designs.

Types of rugs: Moroccan Berber rugs, which can be flat woven or pile and sometimes even a combination of the two. An example of a Berber rug - Moroccan Beni Ourain rugs which are the most easily recognizable will almost always have a white color background, abstract geometric designs and a shag rug texture.
