In Morocco, there are several qualities of sheep's wool but also different wool weaving techniques.
Two Berber tribes are recognized in Morocco for their weaving of sheep's wool to make the famous Berber rugs.
The women of the Beni Ouahrain tribe use classic pure wool, which is typical of traditional Berber carpets.
The appearance of the wool is more relaxed, and the weaving method offers more flexibility to the textile (carpet or other).
The Beni Mrirt tribe, on the other hand, mainly works with wool shorn from living sheep (Sof al Hiya, in Arabic).
The wool is denser, the weaving is tighter and more regular, and the rugs are noticeably softer.
The rugs made by the Beni Mrirt tribe are called "Kings of rugs."
My Moroccan Rug tends to use Beni Mrirt wool in their creations.
Each creation from My Moroccan Rug helps to make the women from
these tribes more financially and personally independent.
Thank you for making this possible.
