Many of the patterns we see on Berber rugs were woven from memory in a colour scheme which is typical for specific groups. This Azilal rug is decorated by an abstract version of the checkerboard pattern, where the repeat is executed in four colours instead of the usual two. The weaver lost her bearings a few times but the end result is truly charming!
