This Azilal carpet is either an Aït Bou Ouli or Aït Bou Guemmez berber tribal carpet. It comes from high valleys in the central High Atlas. The theme is fairly unusual and sophisticated, hence its rarity, with “boxes” taken within a square grid, and all of this hosted within an uneven checker board and made of only dark and white handspun wools. The field is open, as in many berber carpets, and the design only stopped by the finite weaving. Dimensions: ca 360×145 cm/ 12’x4’10”. Period: ca 1960/70.
