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 Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life.
  • Directional design or color gradients with purposeful asymmetry and movement
  • A simple classic, polka dots are at once playful and sophisticated
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and simple shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
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, is 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, wool pile is accompanied by a cotton accent pile for the extra-bright colors cotton can hold when dyed. All pile is knotted onto texutred wool wefts and strong cotton warps.

Moroccan wool is locally sourced and produces a thick, strong pile that feels soft underfoot. Having stood the test of time, this hand-processed wool has reacted to its various environments, acquiring an untamed, nubby look and feel.
