10 Reasons to Love Moroccan Rugs

Moroccan rugs come from a rich and varied textile tradition. Today I want to highlight just a few of the reasons they bring so much warmth and wonder to interiors.

Textural Richness

Texture

Nothing complements hard lines and strong structural elements quite like the sumptuous shaggy pile you’ll find in Moroccan rugs.

Gorgeous Geometry

They are rich in geometric motifs, crafty and delightful.

Robust Colors

Bold coloring is one of the hallmarks of Moroccan weaving.

Berber Tribe tradition

Berber tribes people did not have a written language. Instead they would pass down the stories and myths of their culture through weaving. Their textiles contained narratives, and that influence remains paramount to Moroccan Rugs, even to this day.

Contemporary Elegance

Moroccan Rugs pair excellently with many modes of chic contemporary styling.

Artisan Appeal

The simple style of this weaving tradition draws attention to craft and makes us remember the makers.

Ravishing Neutrals

Creams, browns and ivory with modernist emblems and flourishes elevate Moroccan rugs above your standard beige carpet. 

Worldly Warmth

Great design doesn’t occur in a cultural vacuum, it draws inspiration from a wide world of influences, and Moroccan rugs bring rich heritage to the conversation.

An Invitation to Relax
