Breuckelen Berber was inspired by the founders' personal search for the perfect rug. When seeking the ideal floor piece for their Brooklyn home, husband and wife design team Brin Reinhardt and Nathan Ursch discovered that locating the carpet of their dreams wasn't as easy as they expected.
The Berber tribes of Northern Africa have lived between western Egypt and the Atlantic Ocean, Maghreb, since pre-recorded history began in the region 30,000 years ago. The story of the Berber carpet weaving tradition is a unique one. While most oriental carpets share a common DNA in relation to the Turkish knot technique, the Berber carpet has its own woven origin.
