Uncovering the Rich History of Moroccan Rugs
Moroccan rugs have been celebrated for their beauty and quality for centuries. Berber women, in particular, have been weaving rugs in Morocco for generations, using traditional techniques that have been passed down from mother to daughter.
One of the defining features of Moroccan rugs is their bold and colorful designs. These rugs feature geometric patterns, diamond shapes, and a range of colors, from bright and bold to earthy and muted tones. Moroccan rugs are a symbol of Berber culture and are often used to decorate homes, offices, and public spaces.
The Beauty of Afghan Rugs: A Fusion of Moroccan and Afghan Weaving Traditions
At The Rug Mine, we pay homage to the rich tradition of Moroccan rugs while also showcasing the beauty of Afghan rugs. Afghan rugs have a rich and storied history that dates back over 2,000 years. Afghan artisans have perfected their rug-making techniques over generations, creating rugs that are not only beautiful but also durable, sustainable, and ethical!
These rugs are known for their intricate designs and use of muted colors. Afghan artisans use high-quality wool and natural dyes — making them eco-friendly and perfect for any home — to create stunning motifs that tell stories and showcase their heritage. Afghan rugs are a testament to the beauty of Afghan culture and are a must-have for anyone who appreciates art, history, and quality.
The Berber Bazaar Collection: A Unique Collection of Handmade Afghan Rugs
Our Berber Bazaar Collection is a fusion of Moroccan and Afghan weaving traditions, creating something truly unique and beautiful. Our artisans in Afghanistan have used their talents and skills to create rugs that are soft, durable, and cater to all kinds of tastes.
Our collection features a range of designs, colors, and patterns that showcase the beauty and uniqueness of both cultures. From bold geometric shapes to intricate floral motifs, our rugs are a testament to the history and tradition of rug-making.
In addition to our range of designs, colors, and patterns, we also offer a variety of pile heights for optimal softness. Some rugs in our collection have a higher pile, similar to Flokati wool rugs, while others have a slightly shorter pile, allowing for a clearer view of the intricate designs.
At The Rug Mine, we take pride in being a fair trade, sustainable, and ethical business. Our artisans are paid fairly for their work, and we use sustainable practices to create our rugs. By purchasing a rug from The Berber Bazaar Collection, you are not only supporting the Afghan artisan community but also bringing a unique and timeless piece of art into your home.
