Exceptional Azilal Berber Moroccan Rug

About

An old Moroccan Berber rug from the Azilal province in the Central High Atlas Mountains. Generous proportions and high density weave for this type. This part of Morocco remains a prolific center of weaving to this day, with many local weavers still creating rugs for family use. The history of weaving in the region remains a mystery, as Azilal rugs were largely ignored in even the most comprehensive studies on Moroccan rugs until the end of the 20th century. The use of commercial wool and cotton in bright colors is common in more recent years, whereas rugs with a neutral palette, like this example, woven with hand-spun, local wool, are assigned earlier dates.
