Aït Tigga

Aït Tigga is a Village located about 30 kilometers east of the Village Anzal. Up until a year ago, Aït Tigga was only accessible via an off-road route, so the artisans of the Village would send their rugs to the women of Anzal to sell on their behalf. Thanks to a new road, the artisans of Aït Tigga are now able to sell independently. This collective of 12 artisans weave a variety of rug styles, but their specialty is called Kharita ("map" in Arabic). This complex weaving technique consists of a labyrinthine of geometric shapes and has the same design on both sides, making the rugs reversible.

Rug Style

Glaoui

The Glaoui technique is named after the Glaoua (Glawa) Tribe of southern Morocco. Glaoui is an extremely technical weave as it incorporates three techniques: Flatweave, Hand-Knot and Embroidery.
