Azemmour Embroidered Panel

Azemmour is the capital of the Doukkala Bedouin tribe. It is a port city with Roman and Portuguese influences that was settled later in the 17th century by Jews and Muslims expelled from Spain. This sort of Azemmour embroidery was done by Jewish women only and reflects all the above influences. The snakelike motif is interspersed with stylized plants. The reverse space is heavily worked with silk and the usage of monochromatic silk contributes to a subtle effect.
