A striking vintage rug from the High Atlas Mountains, handmade by the tribes of the Ait Ouaouzguite tribal confederation. It features a diamond lattice pattern in shades of brown, beige and blue with a central colourful boxed motif with a yellow field with another vibrant blue field within. Berber symbols adorn both fields, including depictions of camels and a teapot as well as other more geometric symbols. This rug is totally unique and fascinating in its design.

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!
