This Moroccan Berber rug in beige and blue design, is handwoven by artisan weavers.
Typical for handmade rugs is that they do not necessarily have perfect symmetrical designs. They have imperfections in design and this is also part of the charm of handwoven rugs and what makes every rug unique.
In this case the rug is handwoven with an unusual colour palette in beige and blues and its design is free flow with different themes going on both sides. It works with traditional geometric shapes of lozenge and diamond shapes yet it has an intentional non symmetrical design.
All handwoven rugs are made by the heart, without any cartoon or drawing to follow. This makes every weaver the artist of the rug, as she invents its design while she weaves along.

Maintaining and caring for your rug
This Moroccan Berber rug is relatively low maintenance and only requires and occasional vacuum clean.
It is best to vacuum it on a lower setting and make sure you also do the reverse now and then as just as much dust accumulates there, as on the front.
Furthermore, it is sensible to give your rug a good shake outside every couple of months.
The quicker you deal with spills, the less chance there is of it staining.
The effective way to treat a spill, for example red wine, is to apply water to begin with to dilute the stain, followed by mopping it with a kitchen towel straight away.
Start from the outside of the stain and work inwards to limit the affected area, but do not rub the stain as this can damage the yarn. Once a carpet gets wet, it is important to dry it out thoroughly afterwards, to prevent the wool from rotting.
Don’t use any bleach or chemical treatments as they might take the stain out, but leave a white stain instead.
When in doubt, professional carpet cleaning will always remain the best choice. If you need advice on this, pleased get in touch.
