I have become quite fixated recently with Moroccan rugs – and specifically rugs from the Boujad tribe. I travelled to Morocco many years ago and it still remains one of my favourite destinations. While we were there we hired a car and drove from Marrakesh into the Atlas Mountains, staying along the way at a variety of amazing Riads in the small towns that dot the valleys and mountains. We eventually made our way to Essaouira on the Coast before returning once more to Marrakesh. It was an amazing trip and my only regret is that I didn’t raid the souks more for rugs and other trinkets. The Boujad style of Moroccan rugs that I now covet come from this central region that we travelled through.
Now that we are in the new house, I am on the hunt for a Boujad rug for an area of the dining room. I love an all white interior with a pop of colour and our new house offers the opportunity for that look given the all white walls and floor. So I thought I would share with you today the suppliers that I am browsing to find my perfect rug.
