This is a stunning 1970s woollen rug from the Boujad region of Morocco, predominantly vibrant orange and black in colour, with horizontal lines in shades of blue and green breaking the vertical line pattern into blocks. The reverse shows the textile weft, which randomly shows through and adds extra interest to the rug. A piece of artwork akin to that of modern painters. A rare find.

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!
