Berber rugs are traditional hand-woven carpets that originate from the Berber people of North Africa, particularly Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia. They are made using natural fibers such as wool or goat hair and are characterized by their thick, shaggy pile and geometric designs that sometimes resemble paintings. The designs often feature diamond shapes and symbolic motifs that have cultural and spiritual significance. The weaving process is typically done by women and is a time-honored tradition passed down through generations. Berber rugs are known for their durability and are considered to be a symbol of nomadic and tribal life.
