Every tribal carpet is the work of a woman who created its design while weaving, and in accordance with her own tribal tradition. Therefore, each carpet is unique by nature and conception. Old or recent, it expresses an individual taste and the reflexion on one’s life; and some are really exceptionnal beyond the simple charm many display.
Next to the tribal carpets, the moroccan carpets world offers more and more workshop carpets intended for the international decoration market: where tribal carpets show uneasy proportions because meant for moroccan traditionnal countryside dwelings (houses or tents), workshop carpets are designed for the modern and cities world. Among all productions, Thanakra offers a choice of mostly “white” carpets derived from the Beni Warain carpets tradition, in north eastern Morocco. Woven according to this tribal tradition and using local wools, this type of warpet is easily integrable in most contemporary and classic interiors, thanks to its neutral tones and simple design, while bringing in much light and confort.
Costumes and textiles
Where carpets make the essential part of the tribal furnitures, the wool they are made of has also been the base constituent of many elements of the tribal life in Morocco: clothes, pillows, blankets, some shoes, bags, ropes, etc… Beauty being a fundamental element of mankind, it has always been a major factor in the design of such products used in both ordinary and festive days. Thanakra can offer you a choice of such tribal wool artifacts, out its own collection or from researches made on purpose on your request.
