The story of Moroccan weaving began since the Berbers inhabited Morocco for centuries. Today, the major weaving groups of the Middle Atlas and High Atlas mountains are Berber tribes. While remarkably diverse, Moroccan flatwoven and knotted pile rugs are almost without exception bold in color and lively in pattern. Each rug is unique, involves remarkable craftsmanship and has a high quality. So bring warmth into your home with handmade Moroccan rugs!
Handmade Moroccan rugs made by Moujahid
Artisan Moujahid from Morocco is born in Meknes and now lives in Marrakech. He got expertise in vintage rugs and wedding blankets as an assistant for six years to a famous rug merchant. Consequently, Moujahid formed a passion for textiles. Rather for carpets and vintage wedding blankets. Due to his passion Moujahid gained more experience in weaving. Monthly he travels in different parts of the mountain High and Middle Atlas to source the village rugs, vintage or old blankets directly.
