Moroccan Berber Rugs:
Moroccan Berber rugs are handwoven by women artisans from the Berber tribes of the Atlas mountains of Morocco. Berber tribal rugs are one-of-a-kind pieces, woven from naturally dyed and undyed sheep’s wool. Lacking a written language, ancient Berber weavers would incorporate ancestral myths into their textiles using abstract images and symbols. This magic symbolism and a minimalist design give these Berber carpets their unique and timeless appeal.
