This is an “asachu”, a large weaving meant to cover the stacking of carpets, blankets and bags assembled in the center of the Aït Bou Ichaouen tent, separating the reception/men’s area from the more domestic/womne and childs area. All the furnitures of those sheep breeders are/were made of home produced textiles. Thick enough to be used as a carpet, this flat weave, built with a succession of colored stripes, is decorated with vertical and some horizontal lines of symetric knots. Excellent condition. Period: ca 1970/80 – Dimensions: Ca 485 x 165 cm / 16’4″ x 5’6″.
