Boujaad carpets are named after the breed of sheep traditional of this region. The Zayan tribes who live in the mountains of the Middle Atlas, around Khenifra, weave carpets with long wool, golden reflections and usually warm tones in shades of red, purple and sometimes yellow. These exquisite carpets are rare and difficult to find.
Each Boujad rug is uniquely crafted. Each rug tells a different story with the use of traditional Berber designs & motifs.
Boujad rugs are hand woven pile rugs made using natural wool fibers and vegetable dyes. Newly woven rugs will show strong vibrant colors, typically reds oranges, pinks and/or purples. Whereas, older vintage rugs may have lovely washed pastel tones.
There is no right or wrong spot to put a beautiful Moroccan Boujaad rug, although we would suggest that you place them in lower traffic areas. Because of how these rugs are made they are more delicate than your chain store copy cat. The pile of each rug may vary depending on its history. Some you may find to be extraordinarily plushy, while some are closer to a flat weave.
No one can deny that Bajjad rugs are among the most beautiful ones in Morocco. This carpet is Handwoven by talented Amazigh women from the Middle Atlas Mountains.
These creative women use tribal geometric design, ethnic signs, and codes, which gives them a unique charm and mystery. Each one of the rugs tells us a different story, we can find a rug telling us about happiness and joy, and at the same time another one about sorrow and sadness.
The women take pride in their artistic know-how, let’s support them by making their rugs a piece of art in our space.
