The oldest carpets and kilim made in Morocco come from Taznakht in the Middle Atlas region, The finest and the most sophisticated of these kilim and rugs are woven by the Ait Ouaouzguite confederation which is a group of small tribes from various Berber origins related to each other. Many of these tribes are located around the town of Taznakht which is one of the most important carpet markets in Morocco. The rugs produced by these tribes are either woven, knotted, embroidered or made with combination of two or all three techniques.
We stock a spectacular array of rugs in a wide variety of sizes, styles and colours to suit any home decor- from traditional, flat pile Kilim rugs to the plush, carpet pile rugs such as Azilal and Beni Ouarain. These stunning, woven wool creations are all made in a variety of colours and designs, traditionally crafted by the tribal Berber women of Morocco. As their time is also spent caring for their families and running a household, it is not uncommon for the production of a single rug to take up to 6 months.
Every Moroccan rug tells a story, the life story of its maker. As every Moroccan woman is unique and individual, so is each rug that they weave their story into.
You will see that every rug has a beginning, this is shown as a flat, woven line, and an end where the tale is marked off by a row of tassels. Some have tassels at both ends but it is unusual. They can be used for generic use as a floor rug or as a stunning piece of art adorning your walls. The most traditional and vibrant way to bring a little piece of Morocco into your special space.
