Vintage Boujaad runner from the late 1980’s. The texture and feel of this rug is what made it a must have for June + Blue. The warp and weft were woven with different color cotton, which can be seen very subtly peeking through the faded red and peach wool pattern. It is worn and faded in the very best way, yet the cotton weft makes it durable and easy to care for.
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.
