So when Jamal from Souk it Up showed me his recently discovered Boujaad rug, I immediately noticed this was not just any Boujaad rug. There was a story to it!
First I noticed the remarkable bright pink stripes. The overall tone of the carpet was soft with shifting tones of peach, pink and blue. With some dark areas at the beginning of the loom.
I thought the bright neon pink used in the central diamond shape was very dominant and I noticed the small diamond forms at the sides. The diamond form symbolises the women, but I saw something else and Jamal confirmed my thoughts.
