Vintage Moroccan Boujad Carpet BJ78

This vintage Moroccan Boujad is composed of a structured network of lozenges and double triangles executed in various color iterations. The symbols are organized within blocks, lending a strong sense of order to the piece. A border of smaller lozenge motifs frames the field. Woven in a unique palette of faded pink, salmon, lavender, celadon green, mint, brown, and ivory with a few unexpected dashes of fuchsia. 100% 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.
