This runner is newly woven in the Atlas mountains, and it's a total show stopper with it's color and design, never mind it's perfect size. The motifs are beautiful, and I love how their repeated (yet unique) vertical and lengthening designs are in line with the length of the piece. The wool is high quality, giving the rug a silky feel.
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.
