The early adoption of rug-making by native Moroccans is certainly due in large part to the distinctive climate of the region: Moroccan rugs may be very thick with a heavy pile, making them useful for the snow-capped Atlas Mountains; or they may be flat woven and light as to suit the hot climate of the Sahara desert. 

The nomadic Moroccans and Berber tribes used these pile, knotted and flat-woven carpets as bed coverings and sleeping mats, as well as for self-adornment and burial shrouds. The designs that most frequently appear in Moroccan rugs are traditional and ancient, passed down from weaver to weaver.
