STYLES OF MOROCCAN RUGS

Beni Ouarains and Boucherouites are top of mind when we think of Moroccan rugs, yet they represent just a small sliver of the available styles of Moroccan rugs. 

In fact, every tribal region in Morocco has its own unique weaving style. Some artisans replicate traditional designs as they carry on their legacy while others engage in woven conversations, responding to trends in the interior design world, inspired by consumer demand, and driven by their own artistic vision.

AVAILABLE SPECIFICATIONS

With our network of highly-skilled Moroccan artisans, we are able to recreate your dream rug, turning designs into reality.

This process can be as simple as you sending us a reference image where we adjust the design to fit your specific size requirements. Or it can be more involved, where you take the lead deciding on certain specifications such as Moroccan rug design, color, and pile height.

DESIGN

Abstract / Geometric / Beni Ouarain / Azilal

Depending on the tribal region that the rugs come from, Moroccan rugs may be wildly abstract, or tight and geometric.

The rugs may have patterns that tessellate throughout the rug, or feature one-off designs. The abundance of rug styles reflects the diversity of Moroccan tribal traditions and speaks to a long legacy of weaving throughout the country.

COLOR

Natural sheeps' wool / Vegetable dyed

Most Moroccan rugs are made with synthetic dyes. That being said, there are a select few Moroccan weaving cooperatives that have maintained the age-old tradition of using natural and vegetable dyes. We work with one cooperative that specializes in vegetable dyes such as turmeric, onion skins, madder root, and so on.

Other options for your rugs include using all-natural undyed white and black sheep's wool.

PILE HEIGHT

High pile / Low pile / Flatweave Kilim

Rug pile refers to the thickness of the rug from the surface to the backing. Hand-knotted Moroccan rugs may be either high pile, resulting in a shaggier rug, or low pile where the pile is trimmed after weaving.

Alternatively, in Morocco, there are many artisans that specialize in weaving flatweave kilims, allowing rugs to lie completely flat. In some cases, there are also mixed rugs that feature both flatweave sections alongside pile sections.
