This rare 1970s tribal art rug from the Azilal region is a real eye-catcher. The ivory woven flat weave gives way to a striking cotton knotted pile in colour combinations of sky blue, golden yellow, bright red and orange, interspersed with black and with pops of dark green. Strands of colourful cotton provide additional interest and texture. This rug just bursts with energy and vibrancy. The pattern is random and irregular, featuring bright colour blocks throughout and traditional Berber lozenge patterns at one end. A rug that will truly give the ‘wow’ factor to your home!
A real burst of summer sunshine pours from this very attractive rug. I imagine it in a modern minimalist home with light coloured walls and sleek furniture, where it would sit proud as a statement piece. But you might have different ideas ...

These highly creative rugs are handwoven mainly for personal use in the home by women from the Azilal region of Morocco, an area stretching from the High Atlas Mountains all the way to the Middle Atlas. It is widely believed that these rugs remained undiscovered until the 1990s. Azilal rugs are fine examples of tribal art rugs and are often vibrant, playful and eye-catching. They are usually of low to medium pile, spun using fine pure wool, and occasionally have added pieces of material woven in to create texture and effect. Designs and patterns in our range are freeform, wild and random with expressive colour palettes. They will add new life to any room.
