This is an unusual 1970s tribal art cotton rug, handmade in the Azilal region of Morocco. The fibres are loosely knotted allowing parts of the warp to show through. The loose geometric design runs along the middle section of the rug. Shades of blue, green, yellow and red complement each other and give this rug a striking appearance. It could be used as a wall hanging or as an underfoot rug in any room.
1.45 m x 1.10 m / 4' 9" x 3' 7".
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.
