Moroccan rugs date back to the early Stone Age, where they were primarily woven out of need and necessity, rather than for decoration purposes. The rugs are vivid and coloured using natural pigments, such as henna, indigo, saffron, and madder root. Old designs have been passed down through generations of Moroccan weavers, and old Moroccan rugs are now very popular in houses and modern interior.
