Moroccan rugs are the weaves, carpets, and textiles that have been traditionally hand-woven in Morocco. Rugs have been woven by the indigenous people of Morocco since the Paleolithic Era. Traditionally, Moroccan rugs have been woven by tribal peoples for their utility rather than for decorative purposes.Twentieth-century Moroccan rugs are widely collected in the West, prized as they are for their distinctive tribal patterns and construction. Considered among the finest examples of contemporary folk art, Moroccan rugs are almost always woven by tribes people who do not seek nor possess formal artistic training. Such pieces are typified by abstract patterns, which possess a primitive quality that emphasizes a free treatment of form. The Beni Ourain tribes of Morocco's Atlas Mountains are particularly prolific rug makers, a result of their traditional home in the cold, windswept elevations of Central Morocco: Beni Ourain rugs are generally heavy pieces, and were traditionally used for blankets, shawls, bedcovers, and similar purposes.The tremendous demand for Moroccan rugs – most particularly Beni Ourain rugs – due to their popularity among Western collectors, has ensured that the ancient practice of rug-making in Morocco is as lively as it has historically been.
