Berber Square Print Rug
Produced deep the Altas mountains everything about the Berber Rug is handmade - from the hand spooning wool, dying the wool, until created by weaving in a vertical loom knot by knot. Made in the style of Beni Ouraiine, a tribe in the eastern middle atlas mountains of Morocco, our rugs are made by the berber women that are native to Morocco. It is part of their traditional to weave rugs in order to cover the floor of their homes.
The Beni Ouraiine tribe is located on the top of the mountains which expressed with the domination of the white color - recalling the snow and rock of the mountain. Also known for the quality of their wool and sheep, the Beni Ouraiine tribe is focused in a wealthy area so the women tighten the knots because they have enough wool to do so.
The patterns are normally significant of tattoos of the women or just a fruit of their imagination. It takes 4 weeks to weave the entire piece after which water and soap is poured onto the rug and left to soak so that the wool will become soft. After soaking the labor intensive task of washing the heavy wool begins before the pile is cut to standard length and polished off to its silky wool finish.
Each piece is one of a kind and the pattern may vary slightly from the image.
