Morocco has a long tradition of weaving some of the most beautiful rugs in the world. The Berber tribes settled in Morocco in the 8th century, with the women of the tribes creating wonderful Moroccan rugs still to this day. The hand-tied wool rugs are made from the sheep they herd high up in the Atlas Mountains. You may see Berber rugs referred to as Beni Ourain rugs; Beni Ourain is the name of the particular group of Berber tribes who produce these luxurious rugs.
Each Berber rug has a unique geometric design. Available in three sizes (medium, large and extra large), Berber rugs offer a tremendous amount of variety. We have hundreds of rugs in stock at our Fulham showroom, so why not come down to view (and feel) these exquisite rugs for yourself? We even offer a ‘try before you buy’ scheme, whereby you take a selection of rugs home with you to help you decide which one will best complement your room, then simply return the items you don’t need.
We travel to Morocco to meet with our suppliers and ensure we are able to supply the finest Berber rugs. We pay the craftspeople, usually the women of the tribe, a fair price for their craftsmanship and place large orders to allow us to offer great value to our customers. This means we are able to ethically source the most exquisite, genuine Moroccan Berber rugs in the world.
The craftswomen use natural dyes, including henna, indigo and cochineal, to create the subtle, abstract designs that characterise Berber rugs. The thick, soft wool comes from an ancient breed of small Atlas Mountain sheep; this gives these rugs a distinctive, thick shaggy pile that just cannot be replicated.
Berber rugs UK have unique and intricate patterns and colours because they are made by hand and without a fixed pattern. The natural black colour comes directly from the wool of the sheep and goats in the mountainous regions, with naturally strong colours taken from plants and berries that grow in the Atlas Mountains.
Our authentic Moroccan Berber rugs are given a modern twist with neutral tones and the soft shaggy texture provides a luxury underfoot surface.
