Pile rugs carry huge traditional 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. The designs of Timdokkals are highly unique to the area and are often referred to as "Azilal Rugs", the province in which Timdokkals is located within. This plush rug can add warmth and comfort to any room.
