  • Curator's Notes

    Motifs
    • Moroccan rugs don’t come with a key. As with any painting or poem, their motifs have many subjective interpretations. Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life
    • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and simple shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
    Region of Origin

    Zanafi is a term with an obscure origin. It's used to describe a type of chidoui, which is a type of hanbel, or flatweave. It is also a family name in Taznakht. Zanafi rugs display exquisite technical precision, and were designed as floor coverings for guests. These pieces typically fall into two different color palettes: one with a dominance of saffron yellow, the other with undyed black and white wools and a hint of red.

    Material Details

    Wool, a staple in Moroccan rug design, was considered almost sacred to the Amazigh (Berber) people, whose nomadic lifestyle included sheep and goat herding. In addition to being available, wool is durable, long-lasting, and soft—so it’s super comfy to walk and relax on. In this piece, the wool pile is knotted onto a strong cotton foundation, prized for its sturdiness.

    Moroccan wool is locally sourced and produces a thick, strong flatweave that feels soft and fluffy underfoot.

    How to Style This Rug

    Large rugs from 6’ x 9’ to 7’ x 10’ make great centerpieces.
