The Artistry of a Moroccan Rug
Known for their simple geometric patterns and plush texture, Moroccan rugs add an authentic element, instantly making a space feel curated and unique. Traditional Beni Ourain rugs are handmade by tribes living in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains, and were initially used as blankets for keeping warm in colder temperatures. In the early 20th century, Moroccan rugs gained in popularity. They add a cozy, cultural look to a room, making it feel soft and inviting.
Available in colorful tones, or in neutral palettes, Moroccan rugs are inspired by found items and textiles seen in vintage outdoor markets. A Moroccan style rug can serve as an anchoring element in a living room, plus it’s incredibly soft to sit on; perfect for lounging and casual gatherings. In a bedroom, a Moroccan rug adds a snug, cozy feel, bringing in warmth and character.
Are you wondering if a Moroccan style area rug would be the right fit in your home? Discover more about what makes these rugs so distinctive and special, as well as a few tips on caring for your new Moroccan rug below.
Traditional Style that is Authentic and High Quality
Traditional Moroccan style rugs are hand-crafted from high quality wool by skilled weavers, and are meant to be long-lasting in order to be passed down through generations. They are steeped in ancient traditions and feature tribal or geometric motifs, simple enough to blend well with a variety of décor styles, while still adding visual interest and pattern to a room. Many of the designs featured on Moroccan rugs are filled with symbolism and patterns specific to the town or village where the weaver is originally from. This adds a distinctive and special quality to the rug; thus making a room feel characterful and inspired.
Moroccan rugs can add a warm, vintage look by serving as a rich, cultural element in more modern homes, which can sometimes feel devoid of personality. Versatile and super softly textured, they also give a room depth and movement, allowing a space to feel comfortable and lived-in.
Natural and Neutral
Beni Ourain Moroccan style rugs feature traditional geometric patterns and are usually neutrally-toned in a color palette filled with creams, grays, browns and blacks. Thanks to their soft, neutral hues, these Moroccan rugs are versatile and blend well with numerous different décor styles. Place one in a traditionally-inspired living room with refined wooden pieces and rich, velvet textures for a look that blends elegance with vintage warmth. In a minimalist bedroom, a neutral-toned Moroccan design rug adds a light, airy look, while still being a soft landing pad for your bare feet.
A Moroccan print rug in shades of brown and cream is a natural fit in a room decorated in soft, earthy and desert-inspired hues. Try incorporating handcrafted ceramic pieces, woven baskets and clay-colored accents for a look that feels warm and well-traveled.
While many traditional Moroccan rugs are known for their signature shaggy texture, other Moroccan inspired rugs are of flatweave construction. With traditional, geometric designs, they are an alternative choice for a Moroccan pattern rug that feels more sleek, clean and modern. These rugs are ideal for many spaces in your home, including a living area, bedroom, dining area or even in smaller areas, like a kitchen or bathroom.
Our Sarah Sherman Samuel Collection features rugs that are inspired by Moroccan patterns, but with an updated and more modern twist. These Moroccan flatweaves are subtle, neutral rugs that still add enough pattern to a space, but are still beautiful and extremely versatile. When styling them, consider a more earthy palette and incorporate lots of layers with added textures. With a Moroccan flatweave as a base, we love filling the rest of the space with natural wooden elements and lofty plants. This way you can achieve a look that feels relaxed and casual, with a nod to nature and the outdoors.
Caring for your Moroccan Rug
Handmade Moroccan rugs are extremely durable and should be vacuumed regularly, but be sure to remove the beater bar on your vacuum before doing so. Vacuuming can help reduce shedding, which is common for Moroccan rugs, especially right after they are first purchased. If you need to remove a spot or stain on your rug, be sure to soak up the liquid first, then spot clean it with a mix of water and white vinegar. The stain should lift off with a damp cloth or sponge. As with any handmade rug, for a full clean, take your rug to a cleaning professional.
Moroccan rugs add thoughtful character and warmth to any room, infusing old, traditional charm and keeping a space from feeling cold and stale. Whether you are looking for a more neutral and minimalist style rug, or prefer one that is vibrant; full of energy and color, you’ll surely find one in our curated collection of Moroccan rugs for sale at Lulu and Georgia.
