Discover Carpets Algeria

Each Algerian region has its own style of carpets. They differ in their patterns and colours but their compositions are quite similar. Generally, carpets are made with sheep wool, sometimes mixed with goat hair to get more robust thread. Each year in March, the town of Ghardaļa, 373 miles south of Algiers, organises a big carpet festival - an opportunity for many weavers to meet, exhibit their collections and participate in competitions. Other carpet events are organised throughout the year around the country, notably in Ain El Hammam, in Upper Kabylia.
