Morocco has a long history of weaving some of the most beautiful rugs in the world. The ancient weaving started before the 7th Century with the Berber tribe, people of North Africa who settled in Morocco during this period.

Azilal tribal carpets from the Azilal region in the Atlas Mountains are traditionally woven by Berber women for domestic use. The wonderfully wild and abstract compositions silently give insight in a culture which has its roots in heathen religions. The minimalistic and abstract images are expressions of the natural environment and translate the joy, fear and aspirations of the weaver.

A Moroccan rug is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, a work of art, that will provide beauty for a lifetime. With proper care, colors will not fade and wool will not wear out, leaving a rug that can be passed down for generations.
