Moroccan rugs are created by the Berber tribes of the Atlas Mountains. These authentic tribal pieces have been produced by these nomadic people since at least the 6th century AD. They were originally used tent walls and as flooring and bedding.
In earlier centuries, the long pile side was used facing downward for warmth. Now, we enjoy them with the pile-side facing upwards as a soft landing for our feet. The climate of the Atlas Mountains creates the perfect environment for growing wool that is long, soft, and that is long-lasting.
The rugs were woven by the women of the tribe. The designs and motifs have meaning and serve as a type of storytelling. It was a way to keep the stories and traditions alive throughout the generations. The women are true artists and the rugs are their canvas. Each one is a unique piece of self-expression.
