Buchra means "good omen" in Arabic, and I love this rug because of the good vibes it puts out there! The color and pattern of this vintage Boujad are both so stunning. Like other rugs of this tribe, it features a tribal design that is asymmetric and dramatic. You can see the diamond shapes signifying female fertility and the crosses at the bottom as male symbols. This piece is slightly uneven but this is common with these vintage rugs of handwoven nature. This one would make a great accent in an Entry or other small space.
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 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.
