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 woven like a rag rug with some tapestry technique. Colors are a medley of pastels. Mixed fibers. Tied fringe on one end. Good condition. Use in a low traffic area of the house or beautiful hung on the wall.
Size: 55" x 90" approx.
Country of origin: Morocco
