The Best Rug Choice : Glaoui rug From The Glaoui tribe
The Glaoui rug, also called Glawa rug, is an important tribe of the region of the High Atlas Mountains near to Marrakech and belonging to the linguistic area of Tachelhit. The High Atlas is arid, wet and covered with snow for part of the year. The Amazigh people cling to it yet, taking advantage of the little land that remains deep valleys and rivers. Carpets from this tribe use traditional Berber symbols and vibrant colors, studded with some natural colors.
These rare handcrafted rugs combine in themselves all the art of carpet weaving. It’s both woven, knotted and embroidered with natural wool. Evidently, Glaoui rugs are valuable pieces of art representing the skills and talents of the Berber women. Their value increases as the time goes by, making them a valuable heritage that should be preserved. The art of weaving for the Berber woman is not just an ordinary household activity, but more importantly a way of expression, like a painter in front of his canvas.
