Overview:

This is a lively interpretation of many different Moroccan styles originating from the carpet making region of Morocco in the southeastern part of the country. South of Morocco's hollywood, Ouarzazate lies Taznakht, a dusty desert town known for its carpet weaving tradition. This rug was made by a cooperative of artisans that plays on traditional designs perfected within the Glaoui tribe's weaving traditions. Some of these include the black and white flatweave embroidery that make up this rug's border or the low pile and eclectic designs featured in the center of the rug. This rug is one of a kind and a real testament to the artistic ability of the artisans that wove it!

    We've been working with Moroccan artisans since 2008

    Kantara, meaning "bridge" in Arabic, is deeply committed 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 authentic rugs and pillows that both preserve the ancient weaving traditions and add a modern touch.

    This is why we love Moroccan rugs

    Moroccan rugs are heirloom pieces that age well 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 modern black and white Beni Ourain rugs in the north, to the colorful and abstract Azilal high pile rugs, to the low pile rugs of the southern Ait Ouaouzguite region. While the process of weaving is the same throughout Morocco, the colors, textures, and patterns vary greatly from one region to the next.

    The artisans we work with are skilled at creating hand-knotted, thicker pile rugs, as well as weaving geometric Moroccan kilims, boucherouite rag rugs, and double-sided handira wedding blankets. The results of this are colorful, eclectic, and bohemian rugs that are perfect for any home — from throw rugs to hallway runners to area living room rugs.

    About our collection of custom, handwoven, and vintage Moroccan rugs

    We carry a wide variety of rugs. There are rugs from popular design styles such as Beni Ouarain, boucherouite, and Azilal. We also curate bold and eclectic Moroccan rugs that seemingly have no rhyme or reason. These fully functional art pieces come together to form a collection that is a healthy balance of traditional Moroccan rugs and unique, one-of-a-kind finds.

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

    Wonderful shopping experience with Alia

    Alia took the time to select a rug with me out of their large collection. It took several attempts to find the right selection of beautiful rugs before I settled in this one. I love the vibrant colors and quality. Great addition to my cayenne couch and overall setting. I’ll be back for more.

    Thank you Alia

    Gunther, I'm so glad that rug worked out for you. Turns out it was the perfect match for the cayenne couch and well worth the wait! I can't wait to see photos of it in your space.

    cheers, Alia
