The Moroccan rugs have become "the rug of choice" for many interior designers as well as private consumers. They don't have a long history but are most notable for their dynamic colorful modernist designs as well as for their strong sense of geometric structure (and abstract designs). None so far have been dated to before the mid nineteenth century, when their production began as an adaptation of central and western Turkish rugs, whose repertoire was followed closely by the weavers in Morocco. The rugs from Morocco are, nevertheless, distinctive in their coloration and in the more block-like geometry of their composition.
