Moroccan Berber Zemmour Rugs
The Zemmour rugs can be recognised by their geometric, yet simple motifs. They also stand out because of their colour. The colours of the carpets have often faded over the years, giving them a beautiful vintage look. The special thing about these carpets is that they are (almost) no longer made. So you are lucky if you can get your hands on one!
Specifications of your Zemmour carpet
- Hand-knotted by our cooperative of craftsmen in Morocco
- Made from 100% wool
- The rug is approximately 3 centimetres thick
- During use of the rug, small pieces of wool may come loose from the rug. This is normal and will disappear after a while.
- You can just vacuum the rug. Should a stain occur, you can use a specific carpet cleaner or you can use some green soap with water.
Tips for using your Zemmour rug
Use this Zemmour rug to create a bohemian vibe in your interior. The rugs are ideal for the living room or bedroom, but can also be used in the living room under the dining table. Did you know you can even use a rug as wall decoration? You can read more about this in this blog.
When buying a rug, always look carefully at the size in relation to the room where you are going to use the rug. Make sure your rug connects several elements in your living room. Think for example of your sofa and coffee table(s). This will ensure that your living room becomes one.
Handmade Zemmour rug
To make these beautiful rugs, our cooperative uses the wool of sheep. The wool is washed and then dried in the sun. Then they start the process of knotting the rug on a traditional loom. A rug can contain over a million knots! It is therefore not surprising that the knotting of a carpet can sometimes take more than a month. What distinguishes the rugs from other rugs from Morocco is the high pile. This makes the carpet feel woolly and soft at your feet.
We continue to invest in the personal development of the artisans. We are proud to guarantee that every purchase goes to the makers of your beautiful rug. This is extremely important and the only way to keep this traditional craft alive.
