Aït Seghrouchen

This Zenata Berber tribe lives in the valley of Immouzer high above the city of Fez. Having such close proximity to a large city and its local souk, the carpets of this tribe can take on a variety of influences. The weft threads are almost always a dark black to brown wool and the weavers knot the colorful carpets, tazerbit, from the back.
