The Les Losanges shop offers a wide range of berber mats. But before choosing your cheat african mat, you will find below the story behind the mats.
What is an African mat ?
The Mauritanian mat was used at first by the Touaregs during their caravan routes. They were used as floor mats, bedding, and even partitions.
It is solely handmade by a tribe living in the western Sahara, more specifically by the women of that tribe, that retain the traditional Touareg knowhow. The Mauritanian mat is woven from cane and leather straps, it is therefore extremely resistant.
There are several patterns on a Mauritanian rug, such as diamond, half diamonds, crosses, straight lines… Each of these patterns represents a Touareg symbol, and each mat is unique, refined, and has a story to tell.
The patterns on your mat are made of straps of goat and camel leather, woven in a very complicated manner, that is why each Touareg mat is a true piece of art.
Where should I place my Touareg mat ?
Same as for all the other Moroccan carpets, such as the Boujadd, the Kilim or the Boucharouite carpets, the Mauritanien Touareg mat will easily adapt to your house.
With its simple but modern design, it will easily match the colors of your home, and whether your style is modern, bohemian, chic, or vintage, the rug will add just a little oriental touch.
100% natural, in your lounge, the Mauritanian rug will definitely bring a touch of authenticity. But you can also place it in your hall, where it will bring a comforting atmosphere. You can easily add a couple of colored linen cushions, wooden candle holders on your coffee table and some curtains, the whole atmosphere of your house will change !
The Mauritanian mat is available in several sizes, whatever the room you want to place it in, you will most definitely find the right mat for the right room.
