Meaning "sanctuary" or "shelter" in Arabic, I named this vintage Boujad to symbolize a bold place of refuge. You can find people, animals, and even a teapot woven into this one. Of course we do not know the story, but I imagine the woman who created it placed her home and family above everything else.
This rug is not for the faint of heart! It's intricate tribal pattern and bold hues make it a true showstopper. So much color and character in one piece, it will surely light up a room!
ABOUT MOROCCAN RUGS:
Each vintage Moroccan rug is hand woven and knotted by Berber women of the tribal region specified. This level of craftsmanship can take up to weeks or months to complete a single rug. Weaving techniques have been passed down through the generations. The patterns, designs, and colors vary with each rug, weaver, and tribe – so each piece is truly a unique work of art and 2 pieces will never be the same. Often these rugs have been handed down through the families who created them, and have been uncovered from the mountain and rural areas of Morocco.
COLORS/MATERIALS: Purple, hot pink, orange, aqua colors. Hand knotted wool.
