The Berber carpet is all fashionable in France and in the world at the moment. But did you know that the classic Berber carpet has actually existed for centuries? Even if the design of the carpet evolves over time, the secret of its authentic design is passed on from generation to generation in different Berber tribes. And what is even more interesting is that not all regions make the same type of Berber carpet. Thus there are several varieties of oriental carpets with different compositions and styles.
There are several reasons to buy a Berber carpet. Choosing the material of your Berber carpet is an important step when you want to buy a carpet. All materials do not have the same cost and especially the same quality and life span. So what to choose: wool, cotton or synthetic?
Wool is a natural fiber derived from sheep. Wool is the most resistant fiber for Berber carpets and one of the most appreciated for its resistance and its quality. A woolen Berber carpet, when well maintained, can last a lifetime. That's why Nomad has chosen for the vast majority of its carpets to offer 100% natural wool carpets.
Cotton is a natural material that is often found in the composition of Berber carpets. Very practical, it reinforces the permeability of your carpet. Moreover it is a material which is easily cleaned. These cotton carpets can be kept for up to 20 years.
What is most easily found on the market is the synthetic Berber carpet. They are generally not handmade. They are the cheapest but also those of lesser quality. This fiber tangles and crushes more easily than wool for example. Moreover it tends to attract dirt and makes the carpet difficult to clean. The synthetic Berber carpet can be a solution if you are looking for a cheap carpet that you can keep for a few years.
Now that you know the main compositions possible for these rugs, let's take a look at some of the different types of berber rugs.
