What to Consider in a Moroccan Rug

Here’s what to know before you buy:

  • Size: Measure the area you want to place your rug and choose the size accordingly. Note that a little-too-large rug is often better than a too-small one.
  • Design: Choose from various colors and patterns to match your home, but Moroccan-style rugs will often have neutral colors and geometric patterns.
  • Distress: Some rugs have pre-distressed coloring for a more worn look.
  • Fabric: Check for fabrics that are easy to care for. Many Moroccan rugs are made with wool or synthetic fibers, which are good options.
  • Durability: Consider where in your home you plan to place the rug and if you expect it to have high traffic from shoes, people, kids, and pets. Make sure you pick something durable if it will be placed in a frequented spot.
