All you need to know about our Amazigh rugs. ⴰⵎⴰⵣⵉⵖ

Amazigh rugs have a long and rich history that dates back thousands of years. They are typically handwoven by Amazigh women using natural fibers such as wool and decorated with simple geometric patterns and symbols that held cultural and spiritual significance.

Over time, Amazigh rug weaving evolved to include more intricate designs and a wider range of colors. The introduction of natural dyes such as henna, saffron, and indigo allowed weavers to create rugs with a greater variety of hues and shades.

At Dar Chi, we offer a wide collection of Amazigh styles and patterns. We work with reputable and passionate local suppliers who source the rugs directly from women's cooperatives mastering different weaving skills.

This ensures that the rugs are authentic and that our Amazigh artisans are being fairly compensated for their hard work.
