Vintage Moroccan Boujad Carpet BJR12

A painterly composition of checkerboards drifts in and out of clarity as it shifts across the field. Knotted in a cheerful palette of sky blue, orange, yellow, red, violet, brown, black, and ivory with a combination of wool and mixed fibers. The boucherouite ground peeks through the pile, lending depth and texture to the piece. A charming Boujad runner with a lot of personality.

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.
