Moroccan rugs are hand-made, ornamental, and woven carpets, which are commonly known as moroccan rugs. Moroccan carpets have been weaving for centuries by the native inhabitants of Morocco as the oldest textile in the world. These beautiful rugs were primarily used for interior decoration in homes and courtyards. Traditionally, Moroccan hand-crafts were woven by tribes for their utilitarian utility instead of for aesthetic purposes. These rugs gave an exquisite look to the country's interior and gave a unique touch to Moroccan decor.
