This is an exquisite rare 1940s rug from the Boujad region of Morocco, in great condition for its age. Faded purples, pinks, greens and oranges interact in the amazing orderly yet random patterns that fill every space of this unique tribal art rug. Intricate Berber fertility symbols mingle with depictions of people. A beautifully styled rug, a stunning collector’s piece. Extremely rare to find one of this age and this quality. As this is such a rare find and is of museum quality, no repairs have been carried out on it. Hence, there are naturally areas of wear commensurate with its age.

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!
