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 Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life.
  • Directional design or color gradients with purposeful asymmetry and movement
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and simple shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • The bold, balanced simplicity of color-blocking is reminiscent of abstract art canvases
  • Stripes—a simple and timeless classic
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 sturdy goat hair foundation, prized for its wiry strength.

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.
