Berber cushion rugs were traditionally handmade by the indigenous Berber women from the benimguild region located deep in the rural remote areas of the High Atlas Mountains. Each coushin tells the story of the weaver and symbolises their life in patterns. The tribal patterns can tell stories of life, death, beliefs, appreciation or major life events. Traditionally the art of creating these rugs would be passed down through generation as a mother would teach daughter and so on. Atlas rug is a captivating visual record of Moroccan culture and aspects of daily life. Atlas rugs often feature an exciting and dynamic composition of abstract shapes and enigmatic symbols on a red or indigo field.
