Vintage Moroccan Boujad Carpet BJ_103

This playful example from the Boujad region features a large scale lozenge pattern crafted with an unadorned approach. A strong positive and negative interplay creates an almost childlike collage effect. Executed in a vivid palette of salmon, apricot, and jade green with a dense hand and time faded patina.

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.
