This is a fabulous rare cotton flat-woven rug from the Boujad region, made in the 1970s. The red woven field is adorned creatively with woollen knots in a multitude of bright colours - sunshine yellow, vibrant blues, greens, oranges, white and black - all vying for attention. A row of dancing women can clearly be seen about two thirds of the way down the rug, epitomising the joy that emanates from this beautiful rug. A unique and stunning work of tribal art. This would make a wonderful wall hanging or rug. It pains me to let this one go!

Rugs from the Boujad region of Morocco, woven by the women of the Haouz plain, are very creative and will add a touch of ethnic flair to any home. These tribal art rugs are also very collectible. Some of our vintage Boujad rugs feature more traditional square or checkerboard patterns which give them a structure unlike carpets from other regions of Morocco. Others are wild, spontaneous and carefree, the weaver seemingly throwing caution to the wind as she incorporates multitudes of exceptionally bright colours, lines, tribal symbols and motifs into her unique design. She may play with one particular colour palette or with light and shade; she may add a person, an animal or a scene from memory. Each Boujad rug is truly unique. Tribal art at its best!
