Tuareg Mat - Wadi - 3.54 x 4.16 ft / 1.08 x 1.27 m
✧ Can you tell that this is an actual treasure?
The Tuareg Mat is the least known of the Berber Tribal Rugs. You’ll find plenty along the carpet route. The said route crosses the Atlas Mountains and begins in a golden place - The Sahara. A place where the nomadic, proficient camel operator lives. One of the first traders of these Berber Carpets.
It’s not known to many that the Saharan Berber Tribes are also great rug producers. Much like the tribes of Beni Ouarain, Beni M’rirt and all other tribes in between, these Tuareg Mats also bear the name of their place or tribe of origin. And in this case, these ones have adopted their rightful name from a large ethnic confederation that inhabits the Sahara. It extends from the extreme south. They’re found south to Algeria, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Burkina Faso and Mali. The frontiers are merely a ‘made up’ construct to the people of the Sahara - virtually irrelevant.
African Tuareg Mats are handwoven from reed and leather. After weaving them, the Mats are then decorated with intricate goat and camel leather bands and fabrics. These Tuareg Mats provide resilience thanks to their incredibly durable staple for harsh climates. Made to last for generations, these Mats offer you the desert’s comfort - along with its ruggedness.

During weaving, natural raw wool may contain small fibres. And over time, these fibres will rise to the surface. Don’t panic, it’s natural. All you need to do is suck them - lightly. Fibre loss is completely normal and natural, and new wool rugs will wear them off as it ages.
It’s bound to happen. When it does, you need to act quickly to prevent drying. Use paper towels to soak up the liquid, and clean it with shampoo. When in doubt, professional dry cleaning services will have your back! The average dry cleaner in the UK will charge you 25 per m2.
