A beautiful vintage Boujad rug from the 1950s. Combining muted shades of pink, lilac and green with more vibrant reds and oranges as well as black and ivory, this rug is outstanding in its design and quality. A rare and unique rug, a real collector’s piece.
A rare 1950s treasure! This quality rug still has a wonderful vibrant colour palette despite its age and is in very good condition. I love the clever use of colour in its design – each row has its own individual design, but each shape within each motif on each row has a carefully chosen individual colour scheme that makes it unique. The weaver of this rug obviously had an eye for pattern and creative art. A gorgeous tribal art rug, a rare find.
2.35 m x 1.40 m / 7' 8" x 4' 7".
Beautiful woollen rugs woven by women of the Haouz plain, these tribal art rugs are 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!
