They are thick, deep pile rugs and were made for protection against the harsh winters and climate of the Middle Atlas mountains of Morocco. It’s characterized by the usage of a different set of geometric motifs, tiny details and tribal symbols on a colored area. This is the expression of the creativity of the Amazigh woman in a Moroccan carpet, combining all her intuitions as well as the skills and techniques she acquired by many years of work to create such a precious masterpiece. The weavers use pure and healthy wool as a raw material to weave these carpets. The diversity of these rugs is extraordinary in this part of Morocco because they suited for every taste and will perfectly complete any kind of furniture.
