What Are Moroccan Rugs? Everything You Need To Know

You may have heard about fine Moroccan rugs being used to enhance homes, hotels, resorts, restaurants, and office spaces with an upscale appeal. But do you know what they are and where they are made?

There is so much more to these works of art than meets the eye. A story can be found hidden in the details.

What Are Moroccan Rugs?

Moroccan carpets and rugs are textile floor coverings hand-woven in Morocco by indigenous tribal people. Even though the utility is their main purpose in Morocco, many people throughout the world enjoy collecting and decorating with them.

The varying styles of authentic Moroccan rugs are due in large part to the characteristic climate of the region. This gives each individual piece its own unique story, function, and artistic flair.

Exploring each gives us a better appreciation of what makes this traditional rug-making art form special and why they are sometimes used for more than just to cover the floor.


Karly Allen

Founded in 2015 by Karly Coco, Coco Carpets offers authentic, one-of-a-kind Moroccan rugs to individuals and interior designers alike. Karly, who first learned of the Berber Tribes of Morocco while studying art history in college, was taken instantly by the vibrant handmade pieces. Before long, Karly immersed herself in Moroccan history, only to discover that each region and tribe has its own carpet design and color palette.

In 2014, after deciding to pursue a career in photography, Karly traveled to Morocco planning to snap some photos to document her trip. As she learned the entire process of making these beautiful rugs and forged relationships with many of the men and women artisans, Karly decided that she wanted to import these exquisite items and bring them to homes in the U.S. Upon her return to the States, Coco Carpets was started from Los Angeles, CA. It was immediately successful, and Karly’s deep knowledge of each rug was a draw to many U.S. buyers eager to learn.
