Pile rugs carry huge cultural significance in the Ait Bouguemez valley. When a family first builds a house, or moves into a new home, the first thing women do is weave rugs specifically for each room. All you have to do to learn when a family first built their home or moved into a home is to ask them how old their rugs are. Often, the rugs are more than 20-60 years old even after consistent ware.
