Vintage Moroccan Boujad Carpet BJR15

This playful Moroccan runner features a creative explosion of lozenges in a variety of forms. The motifs morph as they move across the field, changing from more definable to abstract. Knotted with wool and mixed fibers in a broad spectrum palette with a very painterly feel.

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.
