A very unusual and unique woollen low pile Boujad rug from the 1970s with a beautiful aged patina. A real statement Berber tribal art rug with its vibrant colours, random freeform patterns and carefree overall design. The perfect rug for the adventurous customer!
Nicknamed ‘the wild one’, this absolutely stunning rug is truly hard to part with. There have been a few small repairs made to this rug over time (see photos), which points to how much it has been pre-loved and cherished. What on earth was going on in the weaver’s mind as she created this masterpiece? Whatever, just looking at it makes me smile!

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!
