The Boujad (sometimes written ‘Boujaad’) area of Morocco is a wide area of the Central Plains. In addition to wool, stripes from cut clothing and synthetic fibers are used to make Boujaad rug. This habit of reusing materials dates back to the 1930s, when sheep herds were considerably reduced in favor of agriculture. Wool that was already dry was becoming rare. Although different materials cannot be combined equally, their use has opened new avenues of expression for Berber women
