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 Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life.
  • Directional design or color gradients with purposeful asymmetry and movement
  • A crosshatched fade from gentle wear over time produces a soft, distressed look, muting the original color palette
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
  • A handsome, hand-braided fringe woven from threads of the loom
Origin

Once associated with Zayane tribes, the town of Khenifra is a center for contemporary rug production. Today, rugs from this area are frequently inspired by the Beni M'rirt style, identifiable by their geometric motifs.

Material Details

Wool, a staple in Moroccan rug design, is 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, wool warps are flatwoven onto wool wefts, adding enviable body and heft.

Moroccan wool is locally sourced and produces a thick, strong pile that feels soft and fluffy underfoot. A small amount of shedding is to be expected from this natural fiber, but it’s worth it: its high pile is beloved for its wild, tousled texture.
