Boujad Rugs

Characterised by their rich colour palettes ranging from soft faded back pinks, to vibrant reds and warm golden tones, through to rich berry and purple colours. Boujad rugs feature intricate designs that often include large central diamond shapes and free form lozenge motifs, traditional Berber symbology throughout telling stories of fertility, strength, and family events like marriage.

The Boujad region is known for its distinctive weaving techniques, producing rugs in their own unique recognisable patterns and vibrant colours. Handwoven using 100% wool, naturally plant and vegetable dyed, these rugs are a beautiful example of Berber women's artisanship and weaving traditions.

The pile height of a Boujad rug varies, from low flat kilim like surfaces to medium weight loop knots and thick fluffy high pile textures, often finished with hand-plaited tassels or natural wool fringe at one end.

Crafted using specific hand weaving and knotting techniques by skilled artisans, Boujad rugs reflect a rich artisan heritage and can take weeks to months to complete, making each rug a unique piece of art to be treasured.

Ideal for a range of uses, from dining areas to bedrooms and medium-traffic lounge areas, Boujad rugs offer a bright and colourful addition to a space with their beautiful bold designs. Smaller sizes are perfect for adding character to kids' bedrooms, nurseries, or creative studios.
