Azilal carpets are hand-knotted in Morocco. Northeast of Marrakech, after a multi-hour drive by 4x4, you reach the mountainous region where women make these carpets in small villages. Often, Azilal carpets have a bright background color and colorful geometric motifs. Typical for Azilal carpets is the fluffy Flor - a real cuddly carpet! Since the women often tie the carpets in their houses, the weavers are not very high. That's why most Azilal rugs are made in small formats. Typical sizes are 5 x 3 ft, 6 x 4 ft, 7 x 5 ft, 6 x 8 ft. Unlike many other Moroccan berber carpets with a wool weft, Azilal is almost always worked on a cotton weft.
