Region of Origin + Material Details
The Rehamna tribal territory was between Marrakech and Casablanca. Rehamna rugs can be distinguished by their monochromatic orange-red fields, scattered motifs, and their knots, which are placed like stepped roof tiles, one above the other. They often incorporate black goat hair, which they use to wrap the selvedge, creating a toothlike border on two sides.
Moroccan wool is locally sourced and a staple of Moroccan rug design. It produces a thick, strong pile that feels soft underfoot. In addition to being available, wool is durable and long-lasting. In this piece, the wool pile is knotted onto a sturdy goat hair foundation, prized for its wiry strength.
