The Moroccan Zanafi rugs are hand-knotted from undyed natural 100% wool and traditionally decorated with designs from the Zanafi tribe. The handmade Zanafi carpets are hand-knotted by the Zanafi tribe who live in the Ouarzazate region of Morocco. This part of Morocco has long been known as the "door of the desert", with the unforgiving desert on one side and the rugged Moroccan Atlas Mountains on the other. The region can get very hot in the summer – up to 47 degrees, while it also gets cold in the winter – sometimes down to -6 degrees. It is these swinging extremes that have led to the hallmark of the Zanafi tribe – their reversible rugs.
The Zanafi rugs are unique in that they are double-sided. This one side has high pile that provides comfort for the colder nights in winter. The other side does not have pile – instead it is flat woven and thus better suited to the warmer climates.
