Vintage Moroccan Boujad Carpet BJ_120

A more recent example from the Boujad region featuring a loose organization of lozenges, rods, architectural, and zoomorphic references that read as an abstracted drawing. Woven in a saturated abrash of tangerine and ivory, with accents of faded magenta peeking throughout the pile and framing the composition. Densely piled all wool construction.

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.
