I have added the informational pages to my website to show you some of the common designs in Persian rugs and in this page I like to share with you some of the facts about the Moroccan Berber rugs.
One of the oldest and best known types of rugs are the Berber carpets that date back many centuries and have always been popular for the softness and versatile designs. The Berber carpets we feature are made in the Atlas mountain regions in Morocco and we focus on the finer pieces made by tribes in the Beni Ourain, Azilal & Boujaad regions.
Beni Ourain Berber rugs are made in small tribal communities in the Atlas mountains of Morocco and are known for the denseness and natural looks perfectly suited for homes or office with a modern and contemporary design theme. The Beni Ourain berber are made with 100% sheep wool and are made using simplistic organic dyes that have withstood the tides of change. Amongst the various qualities of Berber rugs, the Beni Ourain Berber rugs are highly respected for the high quality and workmanship.
Another popular type of Moroccan Berber rugs are the Azilal Berber carpets, which are made in tribal regions of the mid-Atlas mountain regions. Made of 100% natural wools, the Azilal Berber rugs are similar to the Beni Ourain, but are known for the geometric designs that often include symbols of the nomadic Moroccan tribes. Unlike many of the mass produced Berber rugs, the Azilal Berbers often feature irregular and abstract designs and are known for the simplistic and warm character. They are also very popular with our clients who are looking for a decor rug for their homes with modern or contemporary designs.
Our last type of Berber rug that has also become very popular with our clients are the Boujaad Berber rugs, which are known for adding lots of colors to the designs. Whereas the Beni Ourain and Azilal berber rugs are known for their lack of colors and splendor, the Boujaad berber are the very opposite and are designed to add a colorful and warm feel to a room. One of the features in the Boujaad Berber rugs is the fact that they are often so colorful, that they will match just about any design you have and yet they stand out due to their unique shapes and looks.
