The Souk and Crafts of Morocco

Image result for moroccan rugs

Moroccan women have been making rugs and carpets for millennia. Moroccan rugs are available now only to those who are willing to pay the price. Making of one rug can take a month or more than a year to complete. Moroccan rugs are famous for quality, both in workmanship and colors. Prices often depend on whether the rug is woven or knotted. Knotted rugs take much longer to complete and are much more expensive. Amazigh/ Berber carpets are probably the most famous. Carpets from those living in the High Atlas Mountains people are known for rich warm colors. Carpets made by the people south of Meknes have more detailed weaving.
