Vintage Moroccan Boujad Carpet BJ_133

Unapologetic and unafraid of color, this vintage Boujad features an ecru lozenge network overlaying a field of vibrant fuchsia, violet, teal, turquoise, and dark brown. The neutral layer has a fluid quality, gradating in density across the composition. The pattern abruptly shifts at one end, lending spontaneity to an otherwise loosely symmetrical piece. Constructed of all wool.

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.
