Geometric Boujad Berber Beige Rug 449


Boujad rugs are hand woven made by women in circa 1970’s, pile rugs from a small region in Haouz between the Middle Atlas and the Atlantic ocean.

The weaver has placed several rows of knots on and between several wefts. This makes possible, indeed actually creates, a composition of oblong blocks and linear patterns producing an unusually rich free form of abstract multicolored designs. Each piece telling a tale with the use of traditional Berber symbols.

The beauty of this rug is that she is timeless and blends in every interior.

Boujad rugs are a classic rug with the most vibrant colors. It has beautiful berber patterns and symbols and comes in different shades of the color desert sand.

Rug is the first thing that attract eyes in the room. It may be slightly asymmetrical in their shape and pattern with some imperfections because they are all handcrafted.

Boujad is a large town located between the Zaer-Zaiane territories and of the Rehamna region. It’s an important market center of weavings production in the area from Ez-Zhiliga until south of Beni Mellal. We call this trade ‘Boujads’.

They are since the weaving tribes, though of Arab origin, not part of a single confederation. They are spread out over a relatively large area. Until recently the best know ‘Boujads’ were the mixed-technique examples similar to knotted pile. Some examples are now appearing on the market in increasing numbers, thanks to a large degree to Wilfried Stanzer’s ongoing research and extensive documentation of these pieces. Their diversity in color, composition and weave often sets them apart.

One of the most amazing aspects of Berber carpet is how the Berber woman succeeds in shrouding the profound desire of heer intimate self in abstract symbolic forms, but occasionally also reveals it with a spontaneous lack of restraint. The composition of the Berber carpet is often dedicated to birth.

In many carpets from the Middle Atlas, and from the Boujad, Rehamna and Ahmar, the sequence of motifs indicates the course of an event. The carpet may then appear as a mirror of feminity and of the phases in the life of the weaver. In some cases with a little imagination one can clearly recognize childhood and virginity, bridal state, union, pregnancy, birth pains, birth or even the newborn child.

Boujad carpet will look amazing in any boho-chic environment. Adding a Moroccan rug to your interior will give your space an unique touch and some subtle oriental flair. Of course, this rug is not only suitable for your living room. Boujad will look fabulous and elegant in your bedroom and playful in the kids room.
