This is a vintage flat-woven rug, handmade in the Boujad region of Morocco in the 1970s. It is stunningly bright and beautiful. It features horizontal bands throughout in vibrant shades of pink, red and orange with the occasional muted green band. Additional areas of raised knots in co-ordinating colours add texture to the overall design. A variety of traditional intricate Berber patterns add to the beauty of the rug. A vibrant and exciting addition to any home.

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!
