Moroccan pattern inspired from the "Caïdal" tent , the black "qandil" (oil lamp) symbol of conviviality, care, richness of the interior and interest brought to the hosts !!
Many are imagining the patterns as a chess symbol  and it can be true as the "caïdal" or "makhzen" tents, as the name indicates, have a strong political meaning! it was designed for feudal rulers under the french protectorate ! The artisans at that time might had a lot of thoughts to come up with this symbol design in the end 
and you what do you see ? Chess or lamp ?
