Berber carpet from Morocco - 246 x 156cm
Berber carpet from Azilal in Morocco
This berber carpet is a unique piece. It has a soul. It represents the emotions, the loves, the sorrows of the woman weaver who made it.
Regularly during the year, I go on an adventure in the beautiful Moroccan Berber mountains to find you new Azilal rugs that I love so much. Each trip brings new treasures. This colourful Berber wool carpet is one of my favourites from my last trip. Lively, surprising, graphic. It represents everything I love!
This colourful Berber carpet represents more than two months of weaving.

Finally a Berber carpet at a fair and sweet price!
In a search for a better balance, I have rethought the sale of an object that is close to my heart...the Berber carpet.
Regularly during the year, I go to meet Berber weavers, at the source, in small villages of the Middle Atlas in order to find brightly coloured Azilal carpets, Beni Ouarain carpets with graphic shapes, rare Boujad carpets...
By collaborating directly with more than 300 craftsmen and by eliminating intermediaries, I wanted to make Berber carpets affordable, a piece I love so much. An ethical way of working, fairer for the craftsman, you and me. A different way of working. Fascinating.
For me, meeting the craftsmen is essential when you offer crafts. To know more about their know-how, to learn the symbolism of their creations. Sharing their passion. Knowledge that enriches me and that I can then share with you through THEM.
How to take care to an Azilal wool carpet?
Surprisingly, an Azilal rug is easy to maintain. You have to keep in mind that these pieces full of history are not primarily intended to be a decorative object. Berber women weave them and use them as blankets or rugs for insulation. The exceptional quality of the weaving and the wool allows the Berber carpet to last over time and to age very well.
If you take good care of it, you can keep it all your life!
To maintain it, vacuum it once a week at the most to avoid damaging the wool. If you can't shake it, turn it over for a few hours once a month and all the dust will fall out. In case of a stain, you should immediately tap it with a cloth soaked in water, often this is enough, it is the Moroccan technique that works wonderfully! If not, add spirit vinegar or Marseille soap.
