A One-of-a-Kind Addition

These rugs present the perfect opportunity to add something truly unique to your interior design. Each rug is a handcrafted beauty, with its own look and feel. No two rugs are exactly the same, meaning you end up with a one-of-a-kind addition to your space. The thick, gorgeous pile will add texture and warmth. They can complement almost any décor because of their soothing, neutral color palette and uncomplicated geometric pattern. They don’t overwhelm or detract from the color scheme or other furnishings in a room, but rather add a signature element that pulls everything together. They are an easy way to say on trend without the worry of adding an element that will go out of style.

The simple, elegant styling makes them a perfect addition to any room, including living spaces, bedrooms, dining areas, nurseries, and offices. They are warm, thick, and cozy making them ideal for adding luxury and function to your space. The superior hand-knotted construction and thick pile stand up well to foot traffic too. This makes the rugs ideal for any high-traffic areas, pets, and families. The warmth they add to a room is also very effective in spaces that have hardwoods, laminates, or tile floors that can often seem cold. Functional but stylish, these rugs can be used in almost any application. You can even layer them with other, larger rugs to create a completely different look and feel.

A Cultural Tradition

Not only are these fantastic rugs a perfect addition to any space, they are also rooted in an amazing cultural tradition. Moroccan rug-making is an art as old as time, one of the oldest rug-making traditions in the world. The indigenous people began weaving these rugs in styles to assist with their daily lives – for clothing, bedding, warmth, and comfort. Thickly woven, heavy rugs were made to keep the Beni Ourain people warm in their native mountains. They are crafted from the wool of mountainous sheep, which is thicker and plusher than other wools. The ancient techniques and patterns have been passed on from weaver to weaver over the years, preserving the tradition to this very day. These amazing artists begin learning the knotting techniques at a young age.
