This is a vintage flat-woven rug, handmade in the Boujad region of Morocco in the 1970s. It is stunningly bright and beautiful. It features horizontal bands throughout in vibrant shades of pink, red and orange with the occasional muted green band. Additional areas of raised knots in co-ordinating colours add texture to the overall design. A variety of traditional intricate Berber patterns add to the beauty of the rug. A vibrant and exciting addition to any home.
If colour is your thing, then this is the rug for you! The colour clashing of pink, red and orange just works with the vibrant shades on this rug and the pattern is intricate and beautiful. Boho style, ethnic chic, whatever name you call it, this rug is just a perfect addition to either an already colourful home or to add vibrancy to a more neutral colour scheme. It’s amazing!

About Boujad rugs
Rugs from the Boujad region of Morocco, woven by the women of the Al Haouz plain, can generally fall into three categories:
- Classic tribal designs featuring geometric shapes surrounded by a decorative border.
- Art rugs featuring checkerboard patterns or simply large blocks of colour, sometimes leading the designs to be compared with the works of artists such as Klee or Rothko.
- Abstract weavings – a creative mix of tribal motifs, shapes and lines in bright contrasting colours, sometimes accompanied by recognisable motifs of people, animals, teapots or scenes from memory.
The tribal art rugs made in this region are much sought-after due to their very creative nature. This really is tribal art at its best!
