Moroccan  Rugs

Morocco has a very long tradition of weaving some of the most beautiful rugs in the world. When the Berber tribes settled in Morocco, wonderful Moroccan rugs have been woven. For more than a thousand years, the women of the tribes have hand-tied wool rugs, from the sheep they herd high up in the Atlas Mountains. The tribes are still to be found in the mountains today, and the skill is passed on from mother to daughter.

 

Moroccan rugs have unique patterns and colours, because they are made by hand without following any fixed pattern. The weavers weave in their interpretations of important experiences and events from their lives into the mats; symbols for love, nature, happiness are frequently found on Moroccan rugs. The naturally strong colours, such as blue, red, orange, yellow and purple, are taken from plants and berries, such as the Henna bush, pomegranate, fig and tealeaves that grow in the Atlas Mountains. The natural black colour comes directly from the wool from the sheep and goats in the mountainous regions.
