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 Habboub 155x260 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 central medallion

The central medallion symbolises the gestation and the progressive enlargement of the woman's belly when the sides of the diamond or hexagon are multiplied.

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 waves

Male symbol referring to sensory movement and fertility. Associated with the rhombus, it signifies the coupling of man and woman.

The spider

The spider is a great symbol of weaving, its threads being the image of the weft of the carpet. In Berber culture, it is associated with fertility and magical rites. It also represents the sun and its rays.
