Black & White Rugs
Our collection of authentic vintage and contemporary black and white Moroccan rugs are 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.
The large sized Beni Ourains are ideal for dining area rugs, master bedrooms and high traffic lounge area rugs with their cosy thick wool. The small sized Azilal rugs perfect for kids bedrooms and nurseries or a beautiful feature rug for your creative studio or study.
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.
