As with the Beni-Ourain and Boucherouite rugs we sell, each piece is a one-off in pattern, colour and size and may be either new or antique. Azilals combine the traditional natural wool of a Beni-Ourain with often bright, Boucherouite style threads.
Colourful Azilal Rug AZ41156
Unique, authentic Moroccan handwoven rug in wool by Berber women. A one-off.
Azilal carpets or Azilals, as their name suggests, originate from the craggy and steep Azilal region, located in the remote and hard to reach High Atlas mountains, in the south of the city of Beni Mellal, about 180 km North-East Marrakech.
Azilal carpets are made by alternating composed patterns of one single knotted line and one or two woven lines, according to a cultural ritual that mothers have been passing down to daughters for generations.
This rug has been sourced from one independent local supplier who is passionate about the Berber culture and people and has established a genuine relationship with the makers.
