This is a one of a kind, Moroccan Boujaad rug from the 1970’s. It is handwoven from pure organic wool by a woman of the the Haouz region in the Middle Atlas Mountains. The rug is comprised of warm pink, red and orange hues with scissor, eye and frog motif.

The scissor pattern symbolizes the occupation of metal workers who were treated with deep respect. The eye protects against evil forces and the frog is associated with fertility and magical rights.

Please note this is a vintage Moroccan rug that has had a long, storied life. Expect signs of wear or fading. The edge of this rug has been altered overtime. Theses are not considered flaws…the beauty is in its imperfections.

Description

Vintage Moroccan Boujaad rug hand-woven by a Berber woman from the Haouz region in the Middle Atlas Mountains. This vintage Boujaad rug is made with soft wool and natural dyes and dates to the 1970’s. Warm pink, red and orange hues are a defining feature of these tribal rugs along with Berber symbols and motifs.

Weaving rugs is one of the oldest Moroccan traditions and it is truly an art form. Each rug tells a unique story told by the weaver using specific symbols or colors. The techniques and symbols used by the weaver were passed down generation to generation. While the rugs were used to protect the body from the elements they were also meant to protect the spirit from negative energy.

 

CARE

 

Shake or beat your vintage Moroccan Ourain rug outside weekly and once a year leave it drink in the sun for a day. Vacuum using the hand attachment to prevent damage to the knots and wool fibers. Flip the rug and vacuum the opposite side every other month. Professionally wash it every few years but avoid dry cleaning or steaming.
