Vintage Moroccan Boujad Carpet BJ98

Full of character and color, this vintage Moroccan carpet from the Boujad region features an array of vertical rod and bar formations that dissolve into abstraction at one end. A boisterous palette of pinks, sky blue, yellow, green, ivory, and brown are knotted utilizing a variety of wool and mixed fibers on a cotton warp. The various textures lend plenty of personality to the piece.

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.
