This is a 1960s flat weave rug from the Boujad region of Morocco with an unusual and rare muted jade green background colour. It features a series of horizontal bands in red, orange and black. Additional raised woollen knots add texture and pattern to the overall design. Some henna stains synonymous with a rug that has been used in a home. A beautiful and unique collector’s piece.

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!
