Boucherouite Rugs. These woven rugs are a fairly recent new folk art form that arose out of a wool shortage in the 60's. Without wool, the weavers reached for whatever was at hand: clothing scraps, tailors remnants and more and more.
This vintage boucherouite rug is handwoven and hand knotted made with fabric strips. Colors: grey-blue, mint green, pink, bright magenta, lavender, off-white, black and more. Mixed fibers. Tied fringe on one end. Good vintage condition. Use in a low traffic area of the house or beautiful hung on the wall.
Size: 42" x 64" approx.
