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, and are almost always woven by tribes people who do not seek nor possess formal artistic training.

The text examines the rice tradition of Moroccan textiles, which has emerged from a number of different weaving cultures: the indigenous Berber tribes of the High and Middle Atlas; the Arab-speaking tribes of the plains of Marrakesh; and the commercial urban centers of Rabat and Mediouna. This combination of origins has produced a richly varied weaving culture which is renowned for its use of strong color and geometric design. A chapter on the different weaving traditions is followed by sections on each region, illustrated with beautifully reproduced plates of the best examples.

Very complete book about Moroccan rugs.

If you are interested in Moroccan carpets you should definitely have this book. This is by far the best book on the subject and the best book by Russell Pickering and his daughter Brooke Pickering. The pictures are fantastic. I have seen the rugs in this book in person and the pictures in the book are dead on accurate. The interspersing of pictures, text, and white space is masterful. Hali was involved in this book and it has the Hali look and the Alan Marcuson's masterful touch is very evident. Danny Shaffer is the editor and he does a great job. The book is easy to read and understand.

This book gives us rare insight into the beauty of the Moroccan art of weaving.

I am making a trip to Morocco in a few months and would like to look at rugs - this book is an excellent reference. I am reading about the history of the rug-making tribes and learning about their different methods and styles. The book is beautiful with stunning photographs and complete information. It is really a great source for me.
