The Historic Morrocan Rug | Twickenham Rug Company

At Twickenham Rug Company, we are passionate about merging historical elegance with contemporary style, and our Morrocan Style Rug is a prime example of this harmony. Hand-woven in Northern India, this rug incorporates the finest New Zealand wool to recreate the timeless beauty of classic Morrocan designs.

A Tapestry of History and Craftsmanship

Morrocan rugs are not just floor coverings; they are pieces of art steeped in history. Originally woven by the indigenous Berber tribes of Morrocco, these rugs were used as bedding, saddle blankets, and even burial shrouds, each piece a narrative of the weaver’s life and the culture of their tribe. Today, they are revered globally for their distinct patterns, bold colours, and the stories they tell.

Our Morrocan Rug at Twickenham brings this ancient tradition into modern living spaces. Measuring 241 x 160 cm, it is perfectly sized for adding warmth and character to any room. The intricate patterns and soft texture of the wool make this rug not only a centrepiece of decor but also a topic of conversation.

The Design Philosophy Behind Morrocan Rugs

The design of Morrocan rugs is not random; it is a reflection of the rich cultural heritage and the personal expression of the weaver. Patterns can range from geometric shapes to more abstract forms, each carrying a specific symbolism within the tribe. The diversity in designs reflects the different tribes and regions from which they originate, each with its unique weaving styles and colour palettes. This diversity is what makes each Morrocan rug unique and a collector’s delight.

Key Features of Our Morrocan Rug

  • Material Excellence: The use of New Zealand wool not only ensures durability but also gives the rug a luxuriously soft feel underfoot. This wool is renowned for its ability to hold dyes, resulting in vibrant colours that do not fade over time.
  • Craftsmanship: Each rug is hand-woven by skilled artisans who have learned the craft passed down through generations. This hand-weaving process ensures that no two rugs are exactly alike, each one a testament to the artisan’s skill and creativity.
  • Cultural Echoes: The patterns imbued in the rug are inspired by traditional Morrocan motifs, which are believed to ward off evil spirits and bring good luck to the household.

Integrating a Morrocan Rug into Modern Interiors

Integrating a Morrocan rug into your home decor can transform an ordinary room into a vibrant, stylish space. Here are a few tips on how to style these exquisite pieces:

  • As a Focal Point: Place a Morrocan rug in a central location to draw attention and anchor the room’s decor. Its rich patterns and colours can complement both neutral and bold interiors.
  • Layering: Morrocan rugs work beautifully when layered with other rugs to create a bohemian, eclectic look. This is particularly effective in larger spaces where multiple rugs can define different areas of the room.
  • Accessories: Complement your Morroccn rug with similarly styled accessories, such as throw pillows, blankets, and wall hangings, to enhance the overall aesthetic of your living space.
