This rug is a gorgeous Boujad, one of two in its collection that I found last year from a small town some hours north of Marrakech. It's woven from newly chosen, high-quality wool, and also incorporates in remnants of older rugs that could not be salvaged. The result is a beautifully vibrant new piece, that is at once plush and luxurious, and unusual in its construction, but traditional in it's design.
The Boujad rug comes from the Haouz region of Morocco, an area in the middle Atlas mountains. As with all rugs, the boujad rug represents the weaver, where her story is expressed in rich geometric patterns, and varying colors, often pinks, reds, and purples. These rugs are increasingly rare and difficult to find, as their popularity has soared in recent years.
