KANTARA ORIGINS

Kantara, meaning "bridge" in Arabic, is deeply rooted in its commitment to fair and ethical trade.

Since 2008, we have worked directly with the same weaving cooperatives in rural Morocco. Thanks to our longstanding relationship with these highly skilled Moroccan artisans, we are able to curate and design rugs and pillows that both preserve the ancient weaving traditions and add a modern touch.

WHY MOROCCAN RUGS

Moroccan rugs are heirloom pieces that age incredibly well with time and are embedded with the living histories of the weavers, the symbols of their tribal regions, and the markings of both traditional and modern rug designs.

Each tribal region in Morocco boasts its own weaving style- from the black and white, modern looking Beni Ourain rugs in the north, near Fes, to the colorful and abstract Azilal high pile rugs, to the low pile rugs of the Ait Ouaouzguite region in the Southern desert region of Morocco. While the process of weaving is the same throughout Morocco, the colors, textures, and patterns vary greatly from one region to the next.

Beyond the hand-knotted, thicker pile rugs, the artisans are also skilled at weaving geometric Moroccan kilims, boucherouite rag rugs, or the double-sided handira wedding blankets. The results are colorful, eclectic, and bohemian rugs that are perfect for any home — from throw rugs to hallway runners to area living room rugs.

OUR RUGS

We carry a wide variety of rugs. There are the rugs from popular design styles such as Beni Ouarain, boucherouite, and Azilal style. We also make a point of curating bold and eclectic Moroccan rugs that seemingly have no rhyme or reason. These are art pieces that are fully functional. In that sense, our collection is a healthy balance between the more muted Moroccan rugs that can fit seamlessly into any background, and the more bespoke one-of-a-kind finds.

All of our rugs are washed by professional cleaners before being shipped to Kantara's Los Angeles showroom.
