Buy your Berber carpet right from the source; from Moroccan women expert in the ancestral art of weaving

La dextérité des mains des femmes berbères pour le tissage du tapis

The authentic Berber carpet

The sudestmaroc.com webzine is developing a new service to promote and support Moroccan women from Amazigh tradition, and expert in the art of carpet weaving.

You will be able to order the weaving of your carpet according to your choice of size, color and pattern.

You will get to know craftswomen in their home environments.

You will be able to follow the fabrication remotely.

And you can plan a visit to the villages.

The following catalog presents the Craft Women’s creations from two villages around Ouarzazate, the Zaouit Sidi Ahmed douar and the Imzoughen douar.

Fatouma, Fatima, Khadija, Sfia and Samira have all perfectly mastered the ancestral expertise of Berber carpet-weaving, passed from each generation to generation by their mothers.

Although this place is the land of the Aït Ouaouzguite tradition, these craftswomen are able to make all other styles of rugs and carpets from other regions (Beni Ouarain, Azilal …) as well as the more common styles such as the Boucherouite rag-rugs, made from scraps of fabric of varying colours.

In particular, they can make carpets from one of the models presented in the catalogue, according to the size you would like, or according to your own choice of colours and patterns.

You can now contact us to order your carpet or if you have any other queries.
