Rug Of The Month March 2020: The Marouk MK45
The popular Marouk Collection by Mischioff is enriched by a very special piece of jewelry: the Marouk MK45. A carpet made of pure highland wool, which exudes a lot of harmony and expressiveness with its typical Berber pattern and muted colors. It decorates modern interiors as well as it skilfully stages rustic ambiences.
The Marouk MK45 is a universal carpet that underlines the preferences of its owner for light-heartedness and security. Warming wool, solid colors and the exclusivity of every Mischioff rug are brought together in a sensual way.
A Multifaceted Carpet With History
The Berber carpets once made by the nomadic peoples of North Africa have been experiencing an unstoppable boom in popularity for many decades. Whether in the world of architecture, the interior scene or the international art scene, everywhere the unsymmetrical motifs of the Berber rugs provide a seemingly never-ending source of inspiration. For the wandering nomads, the woolen carpets served as a warming surface and as tent protection.
They were created exclusively from sheep's wool, which is why Berber rugs are still mainly known today as natural white rugs with subtle patterns. The patterns, symbols and signs in a Berber rug have been used for so many myths. They are said to have magical powers. And if you should ever be a guest of a Berber family in Africa, sit down on the carpet and listen to the stories told by the family elder. Or you can decorate your own home with the Marouk MK45 and make it the focus of your own stories.

Magic In Quality And Design
The Marouk MK45, like all Mischioff woolen carpets, is made from pure Tibetan highland wool. High up in the Himalayas, the sheep literally need “a thick coat” to withstand the extreme weather conditions. The wool has a high content of natural wool wax, which is retained throughout the production process. This is what makes the rugs so high quality, easy to care and durable.
The Marouk MK45 retains its protective self-cleaning function even after years of use. Thanks to the high wool quality, the Marouk MK45 has a very soft feel. The knot density with around 93,000 knots per square meter ensures a pleasantly soft hand feeling despite the undoubtedly existing robustness.
Soft Feel And Varied Look
The gray base pile of the Marouk MK45 is made up of countless shades of gray, which adds further nuances to the multicolored pattern. The abrashes (natural color gradients) that result from the mixture of hand-spun wool reinforce the special expressiveness of this rug.
The diamond pattern combined with black contrasts with the gray basic tone, bringing liveliness and tension to the asymmetrical pattern.
