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 Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life.
  • An eye motif indicates the power to reflect the evil eye, and thus protect the weaver
  • 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
Origin

The Rehamna tribal territory was between Marrakech and Casablanca. Rehamna rugs can be distinguished by their monochromatic orange-red fields, scattered motifs, and their knots, which are placed like stepped roof tiles, one above the other. They often incorporate black goat hair, which they use to wrap the selvedge, creating a toothlike border on two sides.

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 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

Medium rugs between 5’ x 8’ and 6’ x 9’ are loved for their versatility.
