THIS RUG'S STORY:
A perfect match for the person who loves both bright colors and bold character, this vintage Boujad features a color palette of fuchsia, light purples and pinks, orange, and black detailing. It's an old piece that packs quite the punch. I'd estimate this one is from the 1970's to early 80's. I named her Maya after the Berber name meaning "princess".
Boujad rugs originate from the tribes located in the Middle Atlas region of Morocco. Boujads tend to be bold in color with various tribal motifs. Sometimes symmetrical in pattern (like this piece), other times very asymmetrical. Each one is very unique and in the vintage ones, you will not find the same design twice!
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.
