We have a very large selection of vintage and antique Moroccan rugs in our collection, including the striking Ghita (top) and Lamia (bottom).

The King’s House Moroccan rugs are created by berber women in the rural mountain region of North Africa.

With no set patterns, these Moroccan rugs are often referred to as “crazy desert art,” with their bright colors and motifs.

The geometric shapes and symbols have origins that date back to prehistoric civilizations and Berber roots.

The act of weaving itself is quite social and often done in the company of family, friends or neighbors. The superstitious nature of the Berber tribes prevents the weavers from unrolling any portion of the completed carpet until the entire rug is completed.

This results in the beautifully irregular patterns that we see in many of these Moroccan rugs.

We have a selection of hundreds of vintage and antique Moroccan rugs in our collection that range from 2′ x 3′ to 8′ x 9′ and 8′ x 16,’ and ranging in price from $250 to $6500.
