Why Moroccan rugs?
What sets them apart from the array of other exquisite rugs out there?
Persia and India are well known for their textiles as well, so is there truly a notable difference?
Moroccan rugs aren’t an acquired taste. They are loved by all - in countries across the globe.
They’re all the rage in Australia, and have been highly sought after in Japan for some time. North America is finally beginning to behold the beauty of Moroccan design and décor. These rugs are simply timeless and story-bound.
Moroccan rugs stand the test of time - durable, yet such a treat to touch. Our female artisan partners put incredible care and attention into each knot they place. Most are created using sheep’s wool, a warm and sustainable product. raha roho uses wool sheared from living sheep, a humane and sustainable practice when compared to the alternative. Produced in small batches and dyed with both plants and powder (for the more modern and vibrant colours), our wool is hand delivered to the co-op weekly.
OK, so now for the fun part of why:
They bring so much warmth, texture, and colour to a space. It’s an easy way to inject soul into your home.
So many of our textured rugs have colours and patterns – while some may shy away from these at first glance, they are the perfect choice to allow living freely. If you spill a drink, who cares? Natural materials like wool clean well, and get better with age. We created the option for custom rugs as a way to involve you in the beautiful process.
