Vintage Moroccan Boujad Carpet BJ29

With an unusual honeycomb inspired motif, this vintage Boujad carpet exhibits a creative adaptation of the classic lozenge pattern. Moments of breaks appear in sections, while other areas combine to create a partial border. The network shifts and begins to dissolve at one end. Knotted in an abrash of warm sunset orange and magenta. 100% wool.

Boujad

An Arab urban center with both Arab and Arabized Berber tribes in the Haouz plains region east of Marrakech (between the Middle Atlas and Atlantic Ocean) named after the town of Boujad, which has an important carpet souk. Carpets from this region have similarities to those from the Middle Atlas, utilizing Berber motifs and similar structures, but tend to take on a more individualistic creative approach. Motifs are often distorted, and vast colors reflect an urban influence. These carpets can vary from an abstract side of weaving art to more precise symmetrical messages. Boujad carpets were not made for bedding but rather for use on the floor.
