Moroccan Rugs – Uniquely Handmade Work of Art

With their intricate patterns and extravagant colors, handmade Moroccan rugs will add warmth and depth to uncovered pavements in any room in your home.

The natural colors that are often used are yellow, red, blue, green, burgundy, black and white. White and black are made of sheep’s wool, the blue of the indigo plant, the pomegranate garnet, the yellow of the saffron, the red is usually extracted from the henna and the green is made of mint. All other dyes use a mixture or shade of the dyes mentioned above.

One of the advantages of using natural dyes on handmade rugs is their long-lasting life, which provides timeless elegance and strength. They are pieces of art in the sense that they are an investment for life, destined to be admired, venerated and handed down from generation to generation.

The elaborate designs of all handmade rugs are created using one or more of the three main types of fabrics: woven hair, flat fabric and handmade tufts. The truss or weave with knot is the most commonly used method and consists of creating wired knots. In contrast, the flat fabric does not use knots in the weaving process, so the surface appears flat. As with flat fabric, a hand woven rug is created without tying knots. In this process, wool or yarn is pushed through a primary support, which creates the tufts. Then they are joined and a second and third base is applied to the back of the carpet. The tuft loops are cut as the last step of the process. Usually, Moroccan rugs use a lot or a flat fabric or a combination of the two.

There is nothing more original than something handmade. The creative use of intricate color and detail is inherent in all handmade rugs. These characteristics are especially evident on Moroccan rugs. Bring this exclusive touch to your home with a Moroccan rug and let the beauty of the exquisite crafts fill your dining room, living room, bedroom or hallway.
