Moroccan

Morocco's rich textile heritage dates back to the beginnings of civilization, with the early adoption of rug-making by native Moroccans. With strong tribal character, decorative quality, and suppleness, the feel of the Berber rugs have long been acknowledged and admired. Color-saturated decoration has long been associated with traditional Moroccan decorative art heritage and typically varies from neutral shades to popping hues. The designs that most frequently appear in Moroccan rugs are traditional and ancient, passed down from weaver to weaver, with designs ranging from ordered geometric shapes and elaborate ornaments to a more abstract and free-form expressive pattern.


Since launching our Moroccan collection over a decade ago at FJ Hakimian Gallery, we have the pleasure of working with numerous contemporary designers who are responding to weavings by the Berber tribes with the same enthusiasm as their predecessors. We supply both vintage Berbers and custom rugs hand-made by the Berber weavers of today. Designers are seeking these rugs with renewed fervor, as they find Berber rugs' light color, softness, sheen, and loose weave ideal for today's barefoot lifestyle and light-filled interiors.
