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 Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life
  • Diagonal lines weave and intersect, forming a grid-like pattern
  • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and primitive shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • Stripes—a simple and timeless classic
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
  • Directional design or color gradients with purposeful asymmetry and movement
  • A handsome, hand-braided fringe woven from threads of the loom
Origin

Zayane, also spelled as Zaiane or Izayen, refers to a confederation of tribes whose tribal territory included the town of Khenifra. Intended for bedding and floor covering, Zayane rugs have a long, frequently red pile. Woven from the back in a reverse pile technique, these rugs only reveal their design on the front after the pile has been gently worn down from use.

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 incredibly plush—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 underfoot. Having stood the test of time, this hand-processed wool has reacted to its various environments, acquiring an untamed, nubby look and feel.

How to Style This Rug

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