A 1980s rug made in the region of Boujad, Morocco. This unusual rug is made of mixed wool and cotton and features a design of rectangles within rectangles, the coloured strands integrating almost seamlessly into each other. The colours are complementary and give a lovely effect. It could be used as a runner or a cosy bedside rug. In very good condition.
I love the strands of colour that form the pile of this rug to give a wonderful overall effect. Not too bright or garish, just subtle yet pretty."

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!
