The Rug Of The Month May 2016 – The Marouk MA01
Robust Rugs With A Soft Pile
All Mischioff carpets are exclusively made by hand. Despite the lower knot density, the Marouk rugs are very durable and have a dense and pleasant gentle pile. Experienced weavers manufacture these rugs in modern manufactories in Nepal, using highest-quality Himalayan highland wool.
The Marouk rugs have very nice natural colour gradients, the so-called "Abrashs", which additionally enhance the individual look of each carpet. Compared to usual long-pile, shaggy Berber carpets, the smooth pile of the Marouk rugs, with a pile height of about 10 millimeters, is low-maintenance and very robust.
Combination Of Traditional And Modern Interior
The Marouk MA01 is one model of a number of different Berber designs within the Marouk Collection. The collection offers exciting and varying rugs that combine tradition with modernity. Thus, these Berber carpets can be set in a contemporary interior, offering a very decorative look. This trend bases on a long history. Originally, this type of carpet is made of the nomadic tribes from the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.
The special charm of this particular carpets was noticed by many renowned architects and designers. For example, popular architects like Alvar Alto, Le Corbusier or Ray and Charles Eames used Berber carpets in their own interiors.
