Vintage Moroccan Boujad Carpet BJ93

This Moroccan Boujad is full of charm and personality, featuring motifs organized in horizontal bands surrounding primitive animal figures grazing near the center of the field. Woven in an artful palette of vibrant yellow, turquoise, apricot, salmon, faded celadon, dark brown, and pale pink with moments of bright red woven ground peeking through the pile. Colorful flat weave bands finish both ends. 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.
