"The Moroccan carpets are unique because of it's sizes, colors and patterns from the region they come from. Furthermore, they are hand wowen by the berber women."

 

Each woman weaves the story of her life into the rugs. Traditionally, Moroccan tribal weaving were made exclusively by women and personal use. Dense pile rugs served not only as floor coverings but as seating, mattresses and blankets in the winter months.

The Carpets traditional dyes comes from local vegetation or minerals and some from shells. In Berber culture, the color blue symbolizes wisdom, red symbolizes strength and protection, green symbolizes peace and yellow symbolizes eternity. 

The Moroccan carpets are today extremely modern and in homes all over the world.

At tinekhome we have two different kinds of Moroccan carpets. The two different kinds are Kelim and Pile: 

 

KELIM CARPETS
Kelim denotes a flatwoven and pileless textile, whose many variations share a common heritage and are practiced all across Turkey, the Balkans and throughout the Arab world. Because the resulting weave is lightweight, these rugs are well adapted for use in the hot summer months and are happily embraced by Moroccan tribal weavers.

Flat weave carpets are carpets that are not knotted and thus have no pile. Rather, the pattern is developed by using wefts of different colors. Wefts are interlaced with warp threads and changed out for whichever color is required. 

 

PILE CARPETS
Pile carpets are carpets with a pile. Historians think pile carpets were developed to mimic the warmth of animal pelts because of their plush  softness. This softness is the result of thousands of knots wrapped around warp and weft strings and then cut. The longer the knot ends, the longer the pile, and the plusher the rug. One side of the rug (usually the back, except in some Berber rugs) will be flat, with all the knot ends on the opposite side creating the pile. If the pile is very long, the intended pattern may be partially masked -- this is often intended by Moroccan weavers; over time, as the carpet is used the pile will wear down and the design will slowly, magically emerge.
