These woven rugs are hand tuareg rugs that are both unique and stunning. Made with the same traditional techniques as other traditional rugs, these are also highly sought after. Although tuareg mats are hand made and not machine made like machine made rugs, they can last for many years. In fact, if you clean them regularly, you will find that they retain their beauty and finish and resist stains much better than other types of rugs.
One of the best selling attributes of this type of moroccan rugs is the vibrant colors and patterns which are woven into the mats. This is one reason why they are so popular worldwide. Each color is painstakingly chosen from a collection of hundreds of samples that have been carefully chosen by the Moroccans. In fact, it takes five women to choose a single color that represents the family's origins. After the colors have been chosen, they are woven on the looms of the dying region. After a few hours of grinding and distilling, these fibers are collected and dried to create the tuareg mats that are now available to decorate homes, guest rooms and even offices.
