In modern times, the Berber weaving tradition has evolved to suit the contemporary market and it incorporates a wider mix of materials. Today, Berbers also weave rich and robust rag vintage rugs that incorporate many bright colors. Beyond the tradition of the Berber tribes, Moroccan Rugs also come in an array of styles and patterns developed in distinct modes in different cities throughout the country. The patterns found in Moroccan bath rugs developed in urban centers are quite different since weavers living in the cities traditionally had more exposure to wider influences, thanks to international trade. In places like Fez, Rabat, Tangier, and Marrakesh, Moroccan antique carpet weavers were more likely to incorporate designs informed by Turkish and other international weaving traditions – floral designs, patterned borders, diamonds, etc.
From versatile flatweaves to shaggy hand-knotted area rugs or runners, Moroccan rugs are both decorative and functional. They are valued for their technical qualities, expert use of fibers, great tensile strength, and abrasion resistance. Without a doubt, the original tribal Moroccan rugs from the Doris Leslie Blau collection bring character and a touch of worldliness to an interior.
