What is the Moroccan Azilal carpet?
Azilal carpets are named after the mountainous region where they are made, about 180 km from Marrakech. It is in daily life that the tribal women of this region revive their ancestral traditions by weaving this Berber carpet. The reputation of this carpet has surpassed this steep region of the Moroccan High Atlas and has become a popular alternative to the better known Beni Ourain carpets. Azilal carpets are strongly associated with the use of indigenous patterns and color palettes.
