Ajjdeeg means “flower” in the native language of Tashelheit. Wild flowers grow abundantly in the vast expanses of palm tree forests that run from Ouarzazate all the way down to M’hamid in the Sahara. The town of Kelaat M’Gouna is famous for the quality and quantity of its native roses, and each year in the springtime the town comes together to celebrate the blooming of these plants with the “Rose Festival”, where many Amazigh farmers and artisans come together to showcase the melange of natural products derived from roses. This carpet was hand woven and crafted in the town of Agdz, Morocco, by Naima and Fatima.
