Moroccan style rugs are more than comfort for your feet. They are works of art that give your room an added sense of style.
And when it comes to style, it’s all about personal preference; style means different things to different people. Some might prefer the look of a Moroccan shag rug, while others might like the timeless appeal of a vintage Moroccan rug. Others might be looking out of necessity for a Moroccan runner rug that also just so happens to exude great style.
No matter your style, we’ve got a variety of Moroccan rugs to browse through. Read on to learn more about our Moroccan rugs, and check out the options below.
Moroccan Berber Rugs
Each authentic Moroccan rug is unique, hand woven and knotted by Berber women of the High Atlas Mountains. This tradition has been passed down from generation to generation.
In this way, a Moroccan Berber rug is like a story passed from mother to daughter. Each of these rugs can take up to eight months to craft. And you can see this quality and care when you touch the weaving and see the detail.
There are many customers who feel that such art and beauty doesn’t belong on the ground. They instead hang these beautiful Moroccan Berber rugs on their wall to prominently display them. Whatever your intention, you cannot go wrong.
Traditional or Modern
Some customers come to us with notions of needing something “modern” to fit their aesthetic. By default, they assume that a vintage Moroccan rug won’t match this modern-day style. But since each Moroccan area rug is unique, there’s no telling how something will match.
You might have had your heart set on a simple Beni Ourain style rug. You like the texture and heavy weight of a Beni Ourain rug more than a kilim. But as you look among the Moroccan rugs for sale, you might be surprised how something catches your eye. You started with a subtle tone, and now cannot get away from very colorful Moroccan rug designs.
These types of shifts in perception happen all the time. The beauty about rugs as art is that they speak to the individual. Their weaving and colors tell a story that you didn’t realize you needed to hear. And this is precisely how shopping for a Moroccan rug should be.
Practicality or Fun
Moroccan rugs enhance any space, regardless of their purpose. As mentioned, you might be shopping specifically for a Moroccan runner rug. That spot in the hallway just needs something, and the runner can be the missing piece of the puzzle you’ve been looking for.
On the other hand, you might just be shopping out of fun. The rug can dictate where it belongs in your living space. You might just see a particular Moroccan shag rug and realize you have the perfect place to put it.
One of the fun things about shopping for Moroccan rugs is keeping your creative eye open. As pieces of art, they can belong anywhere. Listen to the rugs that speak to you. You’ll be glad you did.
