Azilal Moroccan berber rugs

Moroccan berber rug from the Azilal province are rare and were almost unknown to the market until the late 1990’s. They are made from virgin raw wool using one single knotted line and one or two woven lines. Weaving a rug in the Berber village is a cultural ritual that mothers are passing down to daughters for generations. They feature simplistic geometric shapes and patterns with many vibrant colours often used on a cream background.

The design

Creative and fun rugs, their symmetrical compositions reflect urban influence but differ in style and design from rugs produced in the Plains of Marrakesh and the Middle Atlas. Azilal is like the definition of freedom in a rug. Freedom because the shapes are sometimes imperfect but this makes all the charm of these Azilal. Many fields contain a square or a diamond form representing a highly stylized central medallion. They are not like traditional formats, moreover these are composed of different geometric shapes, patterns. The older pieces either have no borders or one relatively narrow, often with designs woven in knotted pile.

The Moroccan tribes of Morocco

The Ait Bouzid, Ait Shokmane, Ait Bou Oulli and Ait Bougmez tribes: they are all tribes of the Azilal province in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. The berber tribes of the Ait Ouaouzguite, in the market town of Tazenakht, produce textiles that combine beautiful shades of every color with some of the finest handspun wool found in Moroccan weavings. You can put your small Azilal rug in your bathroom and they fit perfectly inside modern decor.
