Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Moroccan rugs don’t come with a key. As with any painting or poem, their motifs have many subjective interpretations. Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life.
  • A minimalist, midcentury design with art deco elements
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and primitive shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • Directional design or color gradients with purposeful asymmetry and movement
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
Origin

Boujad was considered a holy town. Rugs attributed there are wide-ranging in color, composition, and weave because they are not all from one tribe. Often described with words like surreal, mystic, and mesmerizing, Boujads depict a world beyond reality. Construction-wise, they have twice as many horizontal as vertical knots, which makes them floppy and easy to move.

Material Details

This rug is called a boucherouite, which derives from bu sharwit, a Moroccan Arabic term meaning 'piece of cloth'. Reflective of the ever-shifting post-modern, post-consumer landscape, these 'everything rugs' are woven with colorful miscellaneous fiber scraps. In this piece, a mixed-fiber pile is knotted onto a textured wool foundation.

Moroccan wool is locally sourced and produces a thick, strong pile that feels soft and fluffy underfoot. A small amount of shedding is to be expected from this natural fiber, but it’s worth it: its high pile is beloved for its wild, tousled texture.
