This Vintage Boujaad is a really versatile size. It could be used as a small space rug, either alone or layered, and would make a great runner or entry rug as well. The base is low pile cream wool with the colorful weft showing through from the back. All the tribal motifs were done with brighter colored cotton and are higher pile than the rest of the rug which adds even more contrast and interesting texture.
Vintage Berber rugs were not made for production, but as functional pieces to be used for many years and passed down through generations. The amazing thing about this is that it means that all the beautiful colors and patterns used have a true meaning behind them that are personal expressions of the woman who made it. These pieces can show signs of wear which I believe adds to their beauty and value, while telling a story about where they were before June + Blue. All rugs are cleaned, and any repairs needed are done in Morocco before shipment.
