These are the tribal chic rugs you need in your home

The exotic workmanship behind these incredible rugs is what sets them apart from the rest.

There is no denying that a striking rug can transform and define an interior. Hence, our obsession with Artisan Flooring’s opulent selection of vintage carpets. Their unfailingly gorgeous Tribal Collection is all about texture, colour and pattern with the fact that they are one-off pieces making them that much more special. From brilliant yellows and luscious reds, the choices are many, but what makes these floor-furnishings stand out is their bona fide traditional craftsmanship.

The Maymana Kilims — distinctive for their geometric patterns and rich colours (especially red, black, orange and blue) — are handmade by nomads in Afghanistan while the traditional Kilims are likewise handmade in the land-locked state of Moldova. These typically feature regional gorgeous floral designs on a dark background and were historically used to decorate the walls of the wealthy in palaces and mansions throughout Europe. The Rewoven Kilims, meanwhile, are made by artisan weavers in eastern Turkey using yarns reclaimed from old tribal yurts (nomadic tents), some of which are over-dyed in vibrant contemporary tones.

Finally, Artisans Morrocan rugs are made of 100% wool resulting in an extremely heavy pile that touts the most luxurious texture underfoot. Also available is a gorgeous collection of one-of-a-kind Beni Ouarain carpets. These prestigious Moroccan rugs are made to size and colour specification, each handwoven using the traditional techniques of the eponymous tribespeople hailing from the Middle Atlas Mountains. Offering a defining aspect to any astute interior scheme, look no further for a game-changing and ever-lasting floor furnishing.
