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 Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life.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
  • Depending on who you ask, the X symbol stands for the body (wih arms or legs spread out), or scissors, which represent the protective, magical qualities of metal
  • A lion's paw symbolizes strength and protection against ill will
  • An eight-pointed star symbolizes the feminine and fertility
Origin

Rugs in the Beni M'Guild style can be distinguished by a fairly heavy pile, playful and complex color variation, and striped, flatwoven ends.

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