  • 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 Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life
    • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
    • Architectural elements represent significant structures like tents, minarets, and houses
    • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and simple shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
    Region of Origin

    Beni M'rirt descendants live in the town of Aguelmouss, not far from Beni Ourain territory, whose influence is visible in their rugs. Originally intended for use on the floor, Beni M'rirt pieces often feature meandering geometric designs and use a tight double knot construction.

    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 wool foundation, adding body and helping it hug the floor.

    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.
