The Ayache

The Ayache

This 50-55 year old piece is a relic of the ancient wool shawl (called a taghnaste).  Amazigh women belonging to the Aït Ayache Tribe commonly wore this particular shawl, or cape, into the early 20th century.  Among the Amazigh, textile designs signify tribal identity.  Morocco has a high diversity of tribes, tribal confederations, languages and tribal dialects.  Articles of clothing such as this, serve as visual extensions of each village and culture.
