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 woven areas and knotted fabic strips. Colors: muted charcoal, papaya, robins egg blue, faded teal blue, light pink, marine blue, pinky pale grey and more. Mixed fibers. Tied fringe on one end. Fair vintage condition. Use in a low traffic area of the house or beautiful hung on the wall.
Size: 40" x 65" approx.
