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 antique carpets 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 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 vintage rug weavers were more likely to incorporate designs informed by Turkish and other international weaving traditions – floral designs, patterned borders, diamonds, etc.
