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 and some yarn. Colors: dark brown, deep red, beige, orange, kelly green, olive, forest green, black turquoise, royal blue and more. Mixed fibers. Short tied fringe on one end. Good vintage condition. Use in a low traffic area of the house or beautiful hung on the wall.
Size: 37" x 64" approx.
