Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Moroccan rugs don’t come with a key. As with any painting or poem, their motifs have many subjective interpretations. Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life.
  • A non-pictorial design employs color, shape, and composition to create a visual language and texture which isn't confined to what we see
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
Origin

Azilal rugs typically have abstract, painterly designs, and are similar to rugs from Ourika. These pieces can be distinguished by their bright colors, facilitated by the use of cotton in addition to wool.

Material Details

Wool, a staple in Moroccan rug design, was considered almost sacred to the Amazigh (Berber) people, whose nomadic lifestyle included sheep and goat herding. In addition to being available, wool is durable, long-lasting, and soft—so it’s super comfy to walk and relax on. In this piece, the wool pile is knotted onto a strong cotton foundation, prized for its sturdiness.

Moroccan wool is locally sourced and produces a thick, strong pile that feels soft and fluffy underfoot. A small amount of shedding is to be expected from this natural fiber, but it’s worth it: its high pile is beloved for its wild, tousled texture.
