A striking bright blue rug from the Boujad region of Morocco, made by hand circa 2000. The background weft is made of hardwearing textiles whilst the pattern is made of woollen knots. Two large multicoloured lozenges adorn the rug along with other seemingly random pops of colour. A beautiful rug or wall hanging.
Maybe not a rug for the shy and retiring, but it’s certainly a beauty! This one would instantly add cheer to your room.
1.75 m x 1.05 m / 5' 9" x 3' 5".
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!
