THIS RUG'S STORY:
Boujaad rugs are from the Middle Atlas region and are known for their interesting and asymmetrical patterns. I basically named this vintage beauty after Beyonce, because legit, this rug is the queen. The motifs symbolize feminine power and strength. A complete showstopper, it has an interesting center diamond pattern and lovely contrasting purple and peach colors. This rug will go in special space where it can be a lovely focal point. Hand selected in Morocco, this is a one of a kind treasure that is not for the meek or mild.
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.
