Many private consumers and interior designers choose Moroccan carpets because of their modernist designs, which are quite colorful and dynamic, and their powerful sense of geometric structure. Although these carpets have a relatively short history, they are distinguished by their block-like geometry composition and the bolder coloring.
Women in remote mountains and plains are usually responsible for producing Moroccan rugs with fixed-heddle looms. Despite their characteristic characteristics, the carpets differ considerably from the tribes from which the women come. They can be almost monochrome, have muted tones or richly colored tones. Other carpets have asymmetrical designs without limits.
The women can use either plain or dyed white or black sheep wool. The dying is usually done with plants and other minerals, which are found in the respective regions, where the weaving takes place. For example, the herb is used in the planes to produce brilliant red color, while ocher is commonly used in the upper regions. The carpets have a variety of unique influences and characteristics according to the geography of the country. The carpets can not be classified as oriental or Middle-Eastern.
The Moroccans used their rugs for various purposes, including decorating their houses and decorating themselves. The rugs were used as sleeping mats, duvets, saddle covers and even grave covers.
Besides being modernist, the Moroccan rugs are much simplistic and relatively cheap compared to other vintage or antique carpets. Since the weavers had to move from one place to another, the vintage carpets from Morocco were designed in smaller sizes to make it easy to mount the loom.
The weavers use their own primitive abstractions in the production of each rug. They craft the beautiful carpets by hand, and the craft tends to run in families, while the elders pass their techniques on to younger family members.
The carpets offer unique and timeless artworks, which are very functional in modern houses. Many respectable architects and designers recognized their beauty in modern environments, including Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, and Ray Eames.
The dynamic nature of Moroccan carpets makes them adaptable to changing interior architecture trends. You can customize the tastes and preferences of different homeowners and designers in many parts of the world. The wide range of styles and colors have helped the carpets remain popular for the past century. Consumers receive carpets that match their areas, whether they come from the hot Sahara desert or the snow-capped Atlas Mountains. The rugs can be used in almost every room by people from different classes.
