Vintage Moroccan Boujad Carpet BJ90

This dynamic Boujad displays a multicolored checkerboard field that shifts in scale and clarity across the field. A lozenge drawing intersected by vertical bars appears etched into the surface, lending a sense of dimensionality. Knotted in a painterly palette of magenta, orange, violet, poppy, pale yellow, charcoal, brown, and ivory. 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.
