Vintage Moroccan Boujad Carpet BJ_112

With a prominent abstracted medallion surrounded by a field of nebulous forms, this vintage Moroccan Boujad takes on an intriguing and surreal sensibility. Many of the floating motifs are executed in brown and ivory melange, creating a diffused presence. A colorful palette lends further character to the piece. Woven with a mixture of wool and cotton fibers.

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.
