Custom Made Moroccan Rugs
Morocco has a long history of weaving some of the most beautiful rugs in the world. The ancient weaving started before the 7th Century with the Berber tribe, people of North Africa who settled in Morocco during this period. For thousands of years, the women of the tribe have woven exquisite hand knotted wool rugs inspired by tribal ceremony and symbolism. The Berber tribes still exist today, living in the Atlas mountain regions of Morocco, where the ancient weaving techniques are preserved and passed down from mother to daughter.
Some of these tribes come to the lowlands to farm, but many still raise sheep at the higher up elevations. The sheep produce excellent high grade wool which goes into the beautiful rugs we sustainably make at MyCraftWork, LLC cooperatives in Morocco.
Women, for the most part, weave our rugs. They incorporate design elements from their personal experience into the carpet's designs. Usually, the designs were created as references to natural events and aspects of daily life such as birth, fertility, nature, femininity, rural life, beliefs and or spirituality. But some of our weavers believe that the rugs could even ward off evil spirits so naturally, they incorporated elements and lucky charms to ward off the evil eye and bring luck and prosperity.
Please take some time to browse through these magnificent handwoven/handknotted works of art. We can also custom make any Berber style depending upon your needs.
