A beautiful vintage Boujad rug from the 1950s. Combining muted shades of pink, lilac and green with more vibrant reds and oranges as well as black and ivory, this rug is outstanding in its design and quality. A rare and unique rug.
A rare 1950s treasure! This quality rug still has a wonderful vibrant colour palette despite its age and is in very good condition. I love the clever use of colour in its design – each row has its own individual design, but each shape within each motif on each row has a carefully chosen individual colour scheme that makes it unique. The weaver of this rug obviously had an eye for pattern and creative art. A gorgeous tribal art rug, a rare find."

About Boujad rugs
Rugs from the Boujad region of Morocco, woven by the women of the Al Haouz plain, can generally fall into three categories:
- Classic tribal designs featuring geometric shapes surrounded by a decorative border.
- Art rugs featuring checkerboard patterns or simply large blocks of colour, sometimes leading the designs to be compared with the works of artists such as Klee or Rothko.
- Abstract weavings – a creative mix of tribal motifs, shapes and lines in bright contrasting colours, sometimes accompanied by recognisable motifs of people, animals, teapots or scenes from memory.
The tribal art rugs made in this region are much sought-after due to their very creative nature. This really is tribal art at its best!
