Moroccan Rugs

Moroccan carpets date back centuries. They were once used for protection against cold weather, but now they are mainly used as a part of house luxury. The art of rug weaving is passed down from generation to generation, carrying on a thousand-year-old tradition. Rugs from different regions of Morocco vary in style as artisans include local folklore, symbolism and weaving techniques into their rug designs.

Moroccan rural carpets are handmade and usually homemade by women. they are still an active industry in many rural areas of Berber countries. Many Berber families earn their primary income from building-up carpets manually and selling them in local markets, merchants and tourists. The traditional Berber carpets differ from the modern ones.
