Craftsmen from various Berber villages in the Atlas Mountains are still practicing their ancestors’ ways. These artistic individuals have managed to preserve their grandfathers’ domain of creating, weaving, smithing, adorning, and selling astonishing items.
What’s really heartwarming about their craft is their persistence to use raw materials such as stone, soil, argan-based cosmetics, and plaster. And the results are always mesmerizing. Whether they’re useful, applied products, or jubilant, geometric decor objects!
In Morocco alone, you’ll find that there are over 60 different trades. Using natural material such as wood, iron, leather, copper, and stone, craftspeople of the Atlas Mountains are reliant on their craft to provide an honest living for their families.
Without activities like these, the population of these Berber villages will have no choice but to succumb to impending poverty, which could mean the end of Morocco’s awe-inspiring Souks.
We have been working with Berber artisans since we first established our ATLAS LUX RUG LTD. Not only does that provide hardworking artisans with hard-earned compensation, but it also helps keep these trades alive.
We’re constantly going out of our way to develop their know-how and encourage learning of different domains. Witnessing the Berber community in the Atlas Mountains victorious once more has been our goal since day one — and we’re making progress!

How thick is the pile of a rug?The thickness of the pile varies depending on the style of the rug.
Are the photos of your Moroccn berber rugs close to reality nd how can i be sure that color i see in screen is the real color on the rug?The photos of our Berber rugs are taken professionally with a high resolution digital camera in a color-temperature controlled environment and the photos are then processed using Adobe Photoshop. The photos of the rugs are therefore, as close to reality as the real Berber rugs. However, it also depends on the type, quality and age of the screen one uses to view the rugs and this can affect how the photos and colors are displayed on your screen.
When should i use under-padding?We recommend under-padding for thinner rugs since it prevents the rug from slipping and helps it stay in place. It also provides more cushioning, thus prolonging the life of your rug by preventing pile crush, and protects the rug from the effects of sharp objects like heels.
What's the fluff in my Berber Carpet?It is not unusual for rugs to shed their pile. When a Berber rug is new, it can still contain some excess material which is gradually released. These are small fibres, pushed down into the pile, that have worked their way up to the surface. These usually disappear after 1-2 vacuums. There is nothing to worry about and trying to speed up the natural process will only cause extra wear and tear to your Moroccan rug. The best advice is to be patient and with general use you will see that the fluffing gradually slows down and eventually ceases.
