Soft hills, the warmth of the sun, silence, you can hear the sheep in the distance, carpets spread out on the hills to dry, colorful areas in the otherwise quiet landscape. This is the picture that presents itself to the viewer when visiting the carpet regions in Morocco. The carpet craft in Morocco is a world of its own - discovering this fills us at MAANA STUDIOS with pure joy.

The simplicity and coziness of the hand-knotted masterpieces have already been appreciated by great designers such as Le Corbusier, Charles and Ray Eames and Alvar Aalto, who have used Berber carpets for their projects and living spaces. In the last few years, Berber carpets have experienced a revival, not least due to the increasing popularity of the cozy 'Nordic Style'

Under the line ' MAANA STUDIOS Selected' we offer unique pieces carefully selected by our team in Marrakech. The ' MAANA STUDIOS Custommade' carpets are manufactured on request and can therefore meet every customer's wish. To complement our range, we sell ' MAANA STUDIOS Homeware' also offers various home accessories and lifestyle products from Morocco. Whenever possible, we source handicrafts directly from the manufacturers. This enables us to support them on the one hand, and on the other hand, by avoiding unnecessary middlemen, we ensure a fair price for the customer.


Each of our carpets, whether made to measure or one-off, is made by hand in Morocco and is unique. The imperfections make the piece unique and set it apart as an original from an industrially manufactured product. One square meter of carpet contains not only a lot of wool, but also a great deal of skill, time and dedication from the weavers from the Atlas Mountains.

Carpet knotting is traditionally a woman's job, while washing and burning the carpets requires a lot of strength and is the job of men. After the knotting process, the carpets are combed cleanly, washed several times and sheared before they are ready for the living room. In every carpet that we are allowed to deliver to our customers there is a piece of Morocco with its very own story.


Although the carpets are made in the mountainous regions throughout Morocco, the largest carpet market is in Marrakech, in the middle of the Medina of the red city. Here all the carpets come together with their own stories and show themselves to the viewer in all their fullness and breadth. This is exactly where we have MAANA STUDIOS . Over the years, our carpet suppliers have also become good friends whose quality of work we can trust. Each works with a different cooperative and has its own carpet specialty to offer. Every region in Morocco has its own carpet specialty, so every carpet is unique.

The dense and often deep orange to red and two-tone Zanafi kilims come from the region of Taznaght in the High Atlas. The classic Beni Ourain with their simple check pattern, the rather shaggy and soft Marmoucha and the colorful Boujad carpets come from the Middle Atlas, to name just a few. The Boucherwit, made from fabric scraps, traditionally come from the region around Zagora.


BENI OURAIN – A classic Beni Ourain is made in the region of the same name in the Middle Atlas. It is characterized by the type of knot and the characteristic black and white check pattern. This is traditionally created by the natural color of the wool. Nowadays, however, colored versions of the Beni Ourain can also be found. Whether it is a bedroom, living room or office – a Beni Ourain fits into any interior and gives it a certain lightness and comfort. Great designers and architects such as Ray and Charles Eames or Le Corbusier already appreciated this and therefore liked to use the Moroccan carpets in their rooms.

KILIM - Unlike deep-pile carpets, a kilim is not knotted by hand, but woven. It is therefore thinner and 'flatter' than a knotted carpet. In certain pieces, the warp thread is made of cotton, which makes the carpet structure a little firmer and more stable. A kilim is ideal for rooms that need to be vacuumed frequently, as they are easy to keep clean thanks to their flat-woven structure. This means that you will often find a kilim in the hallway, children's room or kitchen.

MRIRT – A classic Mrirt carpet is knotted in the region of the same name in the Middle Atlas. A Mrirt carpet is characterized by its softness and particularly high density. The fluffy Mrirt are therefore particularly suitable for rooms in which you are often barefoot. They are therefore ideal for bedrooms, living rooms or even children's rooms.

BOUJAD – A Boujad is made in the region of the same name in the Middle Atlas. It is characterized above all by its abstract pattern and colorfulness. Large areas of color are a characteristic of the carpets from this region, which is why they can give a room a beautiful color mood.

MARMOUCHA – A Marmoucha carpet is knotted in the region of the same name in the Middle Atlas. It is characterized by the type of knot, which makes the carpet structure light and soft. Marmoucha are often deeper pile than a classic Beni Ourain.


The carpets should be vacuumed regularly and dry cleaned if necessary. Light stains can be removed with a mild cleaner or wool detergent. When not in use, the carpets should be stored as dry as possible.

Our Beni Ourain carpets are made from pure new wool. Since wool is a natural material, differences in color can occur and are not a quality defect. After the carpets have been stored for a longer period of time, they may show signs of folding in the first few weeks. Once the carpet is laid out, these will disappear after a while.
