Rug - Margoum / Mergoum - Certified "First choice" by the National Handicrafts Office of Tunisia.

This is a unique piece that will bring a tasteful decoration.

Did you know? The Margoum is a type of rug that is only made in Tunisia. It is a city rug handmade by the craftswomen from the cities of Kairouan, El Jem and Oudhref.

The margoum is a rug both woven and embroidered which gives it a smooth appearance decorated with reliefs. The mixture of its wool weft and cotton warp makes it a rigid and solid rug.

The margoums are always decorated with diamond-shaped motifs which symbolize fertility. However, there are no two identical margoums.

Here is the meaning of the main symbols of the Rug Margoum Makki 124x186 cm :


Note
: Originally, the symbolism of Berber signs refers mainly to life, the fertility of the couple and the fertility of the land. Over the centuries, the meanings have often evolved or overlapped.

Blue

Blue is the colour of wisdom and the path of dreams in the Berber tradition. It is also the colour of water, the universal source of life.

The rhombus

The diamond is the Berber carpet pattern par excellence. It appears on almost all Berber carpets in the Maghreb, whether in Tunisia, Algeria or Morocco.

Meaning 1: The diamond is an ancient Berber feminine symbol that represents woman and her beauty. It represents the womb of life, the uterus or the woman's body as a whole.

Meaning 2: The eye or the mirror: what reflects or allows one to see.The representation of the eye is in the Berber culture a way of countering the evil eye. In the same way, the mirror reflects the evil eye against itself.

The zigzag

The zigzag is one of the most present Berber signs on Tunisian and Moroccan carpets.

Meaning 1: Male symbol of fertility and fecundity.

Meaning 2: Image of water, symbol of life and matrix of existence. Image of the waves of the generating sea or of the lightning bringing rain.

Meaning 3: Image of the serpent that represents the lunar seasons and represents by its moult the renewal of life and the resurrection of nature, the cycle of seasons full of promise. The snake also represents the union of the opposites male and female, sky and earth, night and day...

The X

Meaning 1: both legs and both arms of the man

Meaning 2: birth, the spreading of the arms and legs of the woman in the delivery position. For some, the woman is ready to conceive.
