Azilal carpets bare pieces of art in which every rural woman in the Azilal region tells her story. The themes are all inspired from tribal life as birth, maternity, wedding and even farming.
In Asterix among the Berbers they say that it is the rug that drives crazy. It’s probably far-fetched but I understand that some people are literally crazy. The Azilal manages to bring together the color of the Boucherouite and the first mowing wool of the Beni Ouarain.
The weaving technique different from that used for Beni Ouarains gives a hair less long but equally soft and comfortable which invites to lie there to read for hours and hours and hours… Well, if Lawrence of Arabia does not come to join you there!
The carpets made by the craftswomen of the Azilal region are distinguished by the fact that they are made up of a woven line and a knotted line, giving it its traditional look. This area of the High Atlas is especially isolated, difficult to reach and far from other tribes, which possibly gave the Azilal carpet its unique character in Morocco. The originality of the designs and the use of vivid colors give these carpets a resolutely contemporary and exclusive look.
