The Boujad (sometimes written ‘Boujaad’) area of Morocco is a wide area of the Central Plains;
Rugs that are made by Berber tribes in this region are either flat-woven (kilim) or have a pile.
These rugs are woven with a tighter knot than other styles of Berber Rug which means that less wool is used, but the geometric designs are clearer.
The colours are usually warm red, pink, and orange from natural dyes made of flowers, berries, and henna.
Designs featuring in traditional Boujad Rugs are geometric shapes and lozenges surrounded by decorative borders, checked patterns, and large blocks of colour.
