Contemporary Moroccan rugs are new rugs handmade in the same manner as they have been made for hundreds of years. These new contemporary versions can be found in almost any size or color you choose. They can even be custom made to order to a design of your choosing. Unlike vintage rugs which were confined by the size of the personal looms found within the homes of the Amazigh (Berber) women, the newer contemporary rugs are often made outside of the home where women from the village will come to work together on new pieces. This is a great opportunity for women to earn money as well as support the tradition of hand making rugs so that it continues to be passed on through generations.
