Striking Azilal Berber Moroccan Rug

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A striking Moroccan Berber rug from the Azilal province in the Central High Atlas Mountains with a bold design, vibrant colors and larger-than-usual size.

The rugs of this remote region have remained a relative secret until recently. The area seems to have preserved a vibrant culture of creativity in its weaving to this day, long after authentic weaving traditions dwindled in the rest of the country.
