Moroccan rugs are the weaves, carpets, and textiles that have been traditionally hand-woven in Morocco. Rugs have been woven by the indigenous people of Morocco since the Paleolithic Era. Traditionally, Moroccan rugs have been woven by tribal peoples for their utility rather than for decorative purposes.
Moroccan rugs are very well known for the authenticity of their making and weaving. Tribal people of Morocco used to weave these rugs for the purpose of decorating their living area. But during the 20th century, Moroccan rugs were widely collected by western people for use as floor cover as well as wall hanging decoration. These Moroccan tribal people who weaved these Moroccan rugs do not have any specific professional artistic training, yet they have created these beautiful Berber rugs.
A vintage Moroccan rug aka Berber rug or shag rug can last for a very long time. Berber rugs are very well known for the comfortable feeling under your feet and for giving a nice cozy warm feeling in your living space.
Most Moroccan Berber rugs are shaggy, which is also known as long hair rugs. These rugs are made with very fine quality wool collected from atlas mountain.
Moroccan Berber rugs come in unusual sizes. In the modern age, nowadays, Moroccan rugs are also being made in different other countries, which are more in usual sizes like 6 by 9 or 8 by 10 feet.
