Moroccan carpets were made by nomadic tribes, typically Berbers or Moroccans, in a flat weaver or thick pile style. Their use was utilitarian as well as decorative; designs were passed down from weaver to weaver and therefore carry a sense of tradition and history with them. The most important city for producing carpets was Fes, the capital, which reached its Golden Age in the 13th century, when thousands of weavers were employed. The coastal city of Rabat is famous for its floral and diamond patterns. The sequence of motifs will often signify life events. Modern carpets are usually woven by tribal groups without any formal art training.

Designs appealed to Western tastes employing large-scale patterns featuring millefleur (thousands of flowers) motifs.

Many rugs feature a cotton foundation, are double weft and use an asymmetrical knot, while others feature a superb quality wool, resulting in a luxurious feel.
