Traditionally, Berber people lived a nomadic existence, leading their herds up and down the mountains depending on the seasons. Weaving has long been a part of their culture, and Berber designs are linked back to the very earliest traces of human history, with early iterations found on rock and cave paintings. Although today we use Moroccan Rugs to bring tactile comfort and aesthetic appeal to interiors, their original purpose was warmth and insulation. The Morrocan Rugs of the Atlas Mountains were hand-woven using the sheep’s wool provided by nomadic herds. And the rugs provided thick bedding, crucial for the inhospitable climate, for the nomadic people. The cream and neutral colors common to Moroccan rugs sold en mass today harken back to a time when dyes and colors were by no means a priority.
