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 hand knotted one-of-a-kind boucherouite we bought from a weaving cooperative outside of Marrakech. Wool, rag, mixed fibers. Colors: aqua-teal, dark marine blue, accents in chalky-peach, marigold, bright citrine yellow, cream, bright pink, black and more. Use in a low traffic area of the house or beautiful hung on the wall.
