This lovely find is from the Boujad region in Morocco. Often times, Boujad rugs are known for their vibrant colors, free form shapes and symbols, and irregular/asymmetrical design. This one is much more uniform in style and the colors are more faded. It reads more orderly and symmetrical, which isn't always easy to find in the Moroccan styles. I love the mix of colors, it's truly a stunning piece!
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 in each rug 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: varying shades of soft and faded purples, pinks, greens, and black. Hand knotted wool .
ESTIMATED AGE:Vintage - 30 years approx.
