Beni Ourain and Azilal rugs might have stolen the spotlight in the design world, but there’s another Moroccan rug making itself known: the Tiflet kilim. These flat weave rugs are hand woven by the Berbers of Tiflet a town located about an hour from Rabat in the middle Atlas Mountains. Often mistaken for their close cousin, the deep red Zemmouri kilim, these rugs are dyed with all natural dyes and are washed with sand to give them their muted hues. Subtle, detailed and so elegant, we’re glad the design world is finally sitting up and taking notice.
