About Our

Black & White Moroccan Rugs

Buy a black and white rug online with worldwide shipping from Morocco.

Our collection of authentic vintage Moroccan rugs and newly handwoven rugs includes black and white rugs, white and black rugs, black rugs, white rugs, black with white or white with black! Made from soft natural 100% wool. Ethically and sustainably handmade in Morocco.

Handwoven by the women of the Berber tribes of the various regions of the Atlas Mountains. Each type recognisable by their specific weaving techniques unique to the region and using the wool from the local sheep.

Our collection of black and white carpets ranges in colour from bright white, to creamy natural white through to darker honey tones. Designs include bold geometric patterns and diamond shapes to more subtle designs full of Berber symbology in black, charcoal and grey tones. Each carpet a one-of-a-kind and unique piece of art that can take many months to complete.

Both traditional and contemporary black and white Moroccan style rugs are a favourite feature in architectural design magazines, minimal Scandinavian and Mediterranean style homes and bohemian tribal interiors. Adding a beautiful layer of comfort and texture to any space.

Shop black and white rugs by style:

The large sized Beni Ourain rugs are ideal for dining area rugs, master bedrooms and high traffic lounge area rugs with their cosy thick wool. This white fluffy rug style is the iconic white Moroccan rug popular in interior design magazines and architects.

The small sized Azilal rugs perfect for kids bedrooms and nurseries or a beautiful feature rug for your creative studio or study. Light weight with low-pile wool often flat woven with textural fluffy surface.

The older vintage and antique Berber carpet styles are often quite narrow and long shaped rugs due to the width of the old style weaving looms and traditional Moroccan architecture. Usually measuring around 1.5 - 2 meters in width, and up to 4.5 meters in length. 

Newly made black and white rugs from the Beni Ourain and Beni M'rirt regions can be a great option for those wanting larger area sized rugs in a 3 x 4m size for example. We offer custom orders for new make black and white rugs to your size specifications with a lead time of 2-3 months.

Do you sell larger sized rugs?

We're often asked for larger sized rugs - ie. 3 x 4m

Vintage Moroccan rugs rarely measure wider than 2m. This is due to the weaving techniques of the old style carpets and traditional hand looms used.

If you require a larger sized rug we offer custom sized rugs made to order in our custom rug program.

Do you have other rugs available?

Yes! We have many other options available that aren't shown on the website.
