Recognizable among thousands, the characteristic patterns also make the richness of these typical Berber carpets.
Coming from villages nestled in deserted enclaves, Moroccan weavers have developed an age-old and typical know-how, far from the usual Arab carpet inspirations. Their incomparable comfort is offered by a raw material of very high quality, 100% undyed virgin wool. With short or long pile, the thickest carpets can reach 3 centimeters of thickness for a comfort and an incomparable heat.

Moroccan desert wool: a unique material

Authentic Moroccan Sahara works all have this in common: the softness and silkiness of the wool used in their making. Indeed, the raw material is patiently harvested and selected for each work. The ewes and sheep raised in the Moroccan south have a specific dress to their race and confer to their wool a slightly gilded color which makes all the salt of this Moroccan carpet. The Berber breeders collect the wool of these sheep to obtain a raw material of great quality. The Sahraoui Berber carpets are known all over the world for their large size and their comfort of use. Traditionally offered on the occasion of weddings, the carpet is the image of a superb family. It can take years to complete what will become a life's work of equal durability.
