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 Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life.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 eye motif indicates the power to reflect the evil eye, and thus protect the weaver
  • A handsome, hand-braided fringe woven from threads of the loom
Origin

The Marmoucha tribal territory includes some of the highest elevations of the Middle Atlas. These rugs have a very heavy pile, and were woven for both bed and floor coverings. They often feature chessboard or triangular designs, double-sided pile at the edges, and limited borders.

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.
