A stunningly stylish handwoven rug from the Boujad region from the early 1990s. It features a regular geometric design in well-matched colours and has neat fringing at one end and a woven band at the other.A beautiful tribal rug in great condition.
It’s hard to believe this rug is handmade – but it is. The design is regular throughout in beautiful colours. I wonder if the pattern is meant to depict tagine pots…
1.75 m x 1.10 m / 5' 9" x 3' 7".
Beautiful woollen rugs woven by women of the Haouz plain, these tribal art rugs are 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!
