This tribe in the southern Middle Atlas region has a varied history being on the main trade route from Timbuktu to Marrakech. The usual color palette of the Zemmour tribe has a deep red background using the madder root for the dye commonly traded in the local souk markets. From time to time the designs of the tribe would take on a neighboring influence.
