> Customize Fadma's Vibrant Boujad
Rug Style: BoujadPile: LowMaterials: 100% live sheep’s wool, spice and vegetable blends for dye, and yarn for decoration Time to Make: Due to the upcoming Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr holiday current weave time will be 8-10 weeks (rugs larger than 8' x 10' will take additional time)
The Story Behind the Weave:This rug will be woven by 3 women under the leadership of Fadma. These ladies are from a village 20 km outside of Amizmiz which is based in the Al Haouz Province of Morocco.Resting in the High Atlas Mountains this province is home to the Boujad tribe and the rugs that are crafted in this region take on the tribe namesake. These rugs are hand-knotted using sheep’s wool and spice/vegetable dyes. Saida and her sister Khadijah, pictured, have recently started a village association of women weavers to help their elder neighbors sell their beautifully handcrafted rugs. The symbols, designs, motifs and tattoos we associate with Berber culture originated from pre-Islamic beliefs influenced later by Islamic geometric patterns and ornamentation. In this piece the middle diamond represents strength and protection while the border symbolizes respect.
Each rug is made entirely by hand so there will always be small variations in pattern, color and exact size (up to 10 cm variation) due to the organic nature of the materials but we strive to accurately capture the detail and color so you know what you’re getting. We do our best to visit the artisans every two to three weeks to capture the progression of the weave.
