Next up is Hajj, a vibrant and unique Boujad rug! It appears that a mosque was woven into this rug. The story with this one is that it is believed that this rug was created by a woman who may have made the visit to Mecca, as this style mosque is not typically seen in Moroccan architecture. It's a mystery but I love the creativity, inspiration, and colors in this one!
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.
