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 made with rag knotted fabric strips and handwoven areas. Colors: olive, cocoa, turquoise, pine, red, papaya, hot pink, flecked tan. 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: 36" x 67" approx.
