A Berber Budapest carpets have long been watching the Instagram, now is finally the time to have a personal meeting with Bori, the founder of the brand.

Originally an economist, Bori Körösényi became acquainted with the world of Berber rugs through a weaving project: he sought inspiration for the design of knotted rugs and ran into neon ‘patterned’ abstract Azilal rugs based on raw wool. I was impressed by the amazing sense of proportion to the colors, the strong wool texture of the rugs, and the contrast that such extravagant, modern objects are being born in Berber communities almost isolated from the world in the Atlas Mountains. It has become such a love that it has been going on ever since, Bori has amassed a serious domestic tracking camp for hand-knotted Berber rugs over the past year and a half.

Hand knotting is one of the most time consuming forms of weaving. The weaver knots each knot one at a time, and then one or two weaving rows follow a row of knots. The completion time depends mainly on the number of knots per m2, which also depends on the density of the sowing, the thickness of the yarn, the type of knot, and the ratio of knot-to-weave rows. It is no coincidence that large rugs are often woven by several women at the same time, running side by side. The time it takes to make a rug can still be measured in weeks, but rather in months.

A Berber Budapest its carpets come from Berber tribes living in the Moroccan part of the Atlas Mountains. Moroccan tribal culture is extremely diverse, with many different Berber tribes living in the Atlas ranges to which countless different types of carpets can be attached. Most types come from geographically well-defined areas, and in many cases have the same name as their place of origin. Berber Budapest's offer currently focuses primarily on Beni Ourain, Azilal, Boujaad and Boucherouite rugs, in a completely subjective selection. Rugs are most often made of wool by hand weaving and in most cases by hand knotting. In the Atlas Mountains, each tribe has its own weaving tradition, the characteristic color and pattern set, knotting technique is passed down from generation to generation within the family. In addition to the common style cues, each rug is completely unique. For Berber women, weaving is a means of self-expression, and every rug is an imprint of the individuality, desires, and life path of a weaver.
