A 1980s rug made in the region of Boujad, Morocco. This unusual rug is made of mixed wool and cotton and features a design of rectangles within rectangles, the coloured strands integrating almost seamlessly into each other. The colours are complementary and give a lovely effect. It could be used as a runner or a cosy bedside rug. In very good condition.
I love the strands of colour that form the pile of this rug to give a wonderful overall effect. Not too bright or garish, just subtle yet pretty.

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!
