Vintage Moroccan Boujad Carpet BJR13

A vibrant study in geometry, composition, and color, this vintage Boujad runner features a checkerboard structure that shifts in scale across the field. An organized grid morphs into various iterations, dissolving at one end. Knotted in a playful multicolored palette on a boucherouite ground with wool and mixed fibers.

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.
