Specifications

Carpet ID JOUB16
Knot density approx 40 000 knots per m²

You can easily calculate the knot density yourself by counting the number of knots 1 cm down and 1 cm across, and then multiplying these numbers together. Then multiply the total by 10,000 to give the number of knots per m².

Some carpet sellers exaggerate the knot density, so to be sure that you are comparing like for like when it comes to price, it is worth checking the knot density yourself. Most of CarpetVista’s carpets have a photograph of the reverse with a ruler, making it easy to examine the knot quality and count the exact knot density before choosing your carpet.

Wool has a naturally dirt-repelling effect and is easy to keep clean. It is also flame resistant and characteristically retains it’s shape so that the pile of the rug always rises.

Berber Moroccan - Mid Atlas carpet from Morocco.

Moroccan Berber rugs are hand-woven crafts from nomadic tribes in the Atlas Mountains. The carpets are known for their geometric patterns in clear colours and that are hand-woven without a template. The weaver interprets events from his life in the rugs, which are usually symbols of happiness, love and nature. The Berber tribes are still in the mountains today and the weaving is inherited from mother to daughter. The material is the finest sheep wool that, with the help of plants and berries, gets its strong colours. The natural colors white, brown and black are wool that comes directly from the sheep found in the mountain areas. The Moroccan rugs that dominates are Beni Ourain as well as the colorful Azilal and Boucherouite.
