  • 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 Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life
    • Lined with a repeating set of three medallions to create multiple points of visual interest and direction
    • A hooked detail, also known as a sickle, represents metal, which had protective magic according to the Amazigh
    • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
    Region of Origin

    A confederation of tribes whose territory sat between Rabat and Meknès, the Zemmour wove piled rugs which tended to be smaller than most Middle Atlas rugs. These pieces often combine vertical and horiziontal rows of motifs into a chessboard design, or feature diamond and triangular arrangements. Red is frequently used for the ground or the selvedge.

    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.
