This is a visually exciting knotted wool rug made in the 1970s in the Boujad region of Morocco. It is freeform in shape and features a strong palette of colours ranging from sky blue and lime green to orange to yellow, purple and black – a lively colour combination. A loose checkerboard design gives a small amount of uniformity and yet the creative use of colour and design make this a very artistic and unique tribal art rug.

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!
