The Berber carpet has its origins in the very north of the African continent: in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. The Berber tribes, living as nomads, wove and knotted these robust wool carpets here generations ago. Their name is therefore derived from this ethnic group, who created this type of carpet. Originally, these carpets were woven by hand. Knotting as a manufacturing technique prevailed only in the 20th century.
The carpets are made of robust, natural virgin sheep's wool, which protected the nomads from wind and cold. As blankets, underlays and also as wall hangings, these rugs served numerous purposes in the tents.
Traditional motifs decorate the knotted work made of virgin wool: Triangles, diamonds and tribal symbols are typical of a Berber rug. These vary according to region and tribal affiliation. This allows conclusions to be drawn about the manufacturer and production region. Common to all Berber carpets is the typical asymmetrical pattern, which makes them even today a decorative home accessory.
Differences can be found in the colors. Although most of them have a wool-white base tone that contrasts with the dark motifs, there are also variants with a different color scheme depending on the region. Then yellow, red or orange tones prevail, which are made from virgin wool dyed with vegetable dyes.

A Berber carpet consists of pure, hand-knotted virgin wool in natural tones. Mostly in off-white, beige or light brown - only very rarely black variants are found - the wool is natural, so washed and combed, but usually not dyed.
The inimitable character of the rugs lies in the asymmetrical designs. Various geometric motifs blend into clear patterns, which are interrupted by decorations with various animal and tribal symbols.
As a material for traditional Berber carpets, high pile wool fibers are used, which give the high pile carpets the characteristic, "shaggy" look. A Berber carpet made of virgin wool represents a special haptic experience and stands for genuine Berber carpet quality.
An important quality feature is the weave. Classic Berber carpets from North Africa often have only a low density of 25,000 to 50,000 knots per square meter. With rough treatment, the carpets therefore quickly lose their wool.
To avoid this problem, Mischioff has its own Berber carpets produced in Nepal. These Nepal carpets resemble the originals both visually and in terms of craftsmanship, but have significantly better product characteristics.
The Berber carpets of the Mischioff collections are based on the North African originals in design and creation. Hand-knotted and made of high-quality virgin wool, they are in no way inferior to real Berbers. Our carpets have a smooth, low pile, which makes the carpets considerably easier to clean than their "shaggy brothers".
The careful and fine knotting of the high-quality highland wool also gives the Mischioff carpets higher stability, which the originals lack despite the craftsmanship of the Berbers. Mischioff's Berber carpets are very robust, easy to clean and durable and thus meet the highest demands.
Our collections offer the right solution for the private living area as well as for highly frequented areas in the project area. We would be happy to introduce you to our Berber carpets in more detail - discover our extensive range of decorative, hand-knotted carpets.
