Azilal region Rugs in the Atlas Mountains are traditionally woven by Berber women for domestic use.
The wonderfully wild rich and colorful composition gives insight to the culture and the environment .
The figures reflect the rich colorful spring in the mountains.
THE azilal, before the 80s, was created almost exclusively from brown undyed wool on a cream background.
Clear geometric designs and cultural expressions chosen by the weaver at random define the older Azilal.
The Azilal region is a difficult to reach mountainous area that extends north of the main rise of the High Atlas to the southern foothills of the Middle Atlas.
The use of color in Azilal rugs began when a migrant city dweller, inspired by a new wave of modernism, first picked up some bright synthetic thread and decided to create something different.
The result was a playful, free-style rug reminiscent of a contemporary painting.
