Why Are Moroccan Rugs So Expensive?

Let’s start by addressing the elephant in the room: the somewhat pricy nature of Moroccan rugs. It’s no secret that Moroccan rugs don’t come cheap. Is it because they are handmade? Or, maybe it’s because they feature captivating artistic designs? We believe it’s all of the above reasons and more.

Moroccan rugs—also known as berber rugs—are originally made by different tribes in Morocco. They are hand woven, using superior wool which makes them extremely plush and soft compared to your average rug.

As you can imagine, purchasing an authentic rug from Morocco plus the shipping costs and mark up leaves you with a pricy product on your hands. But we can promise you that the rugs are very much worth the extra dollars.

Why Pick a Moroccan Rug?

We discovered that when shopping for rugs Perth residents especially love Moroccan rugs because of the following reasons.

It’s a Rug Like No Other

Judging from the earlier description, there’s nothing ordinary about a Moroccan rug. These distinct rugs add style and elegance to a space. This is especially true if you pick an authentic Moroccan rug such as a Beni Ourain. By picking this Moroccan style rug, rest assured that very few people will have the same rug as you! How’s that for standing out?

Trendy, Yet Classic

Moroccan rugs are perfect for adding that trendy but classic feel. If you’ve always been torn between traditional and contemporary inspired decor, a Moroccan rug provides the perfect balance between the two.

Are you drawn to bold and colourful prints? Pick a vintage Moroccan rug characterised by stunning graphics. The intricate patterns on these rugs tell a story of their own. If you’re into warm and orange hues, then pick a boujad rug to liven up your dining room.

Very Warm

Cold nights in Australia will have you realising that adding a Moroccan rug to your home is the best decision you can ever make. 

Given the fact that these rugs are made in the cold Atlas Mountains, it’s not surprising that they are designed with warmth in mind. Place it in your bedroom to create a cosy and comfortable space. Your feet will be in for a treat during those extra chilly days.

Comfort Unmatched

As if that’s not enough, Moroccan rugs are known for the sheer comfort they provide. They are a dream to sit on which is something you’ll appreciate if you have little ones in the house.

Built to Last

All the factors mentioned above are pointless if the rugs feature a flimsy construction, right? No one wants to spend a fortune on a rug that will tear a few months down the line. Thankfully, that’s something you don’t have to worry about if you purchase a Moroccan rug because it’s extremely durable.

Moroccan rugs are made of natural fibres that can withstand considerable foot traffic. Even if you get a bit of dust and debris on the rug, cleaning it up is super easy as we’ll outline below. But that doesn’t mean you should place it in busy areas like your hallway to be trampled on by muddy boots. Rather reserve this unique carpet for your lounge or bedroom.

A Breeze to Decorate

Styling your Moroccan rug is an absolute breeze. This is because it complements different colours and patterns perfectly:

  • Pick a Moroccan rug from our Saffron collection if you want to decorate a room that features neutral hues and subtle decor.
  • Have a look at our Makkaresh collection if you want Moroccan rugs with stunning geometric prints to make a statement.
  • If you’re into bold colours, pick a navy trellis rug to add a pop of colour to your space.

Your options are endless.

Easy to Layer Up

Layering up is the in-thing when styling your rugs. And Moroccan rugs make it a dream to do so. You could pick a bold colorful Moroccan rug and place it over one with more natural hues like a jute rug to give your home that traditional vibe.

You Can Find One You Can Afford

Is picking an authentic rug directly shipped from Morocco not an option because of the high price?  All hope isn’t lost. You can purchase similar locally produced versions at affordable prices.

At SpacerStore we have different Moroccan rugs at all price points. Choose one that you can afford. Chances are that your friends won’t even know the difference!

How to Clean a Moroccan Rug
