Überhip colorful vintage Boucherouite rug, handmade from Morocco.
The Boucherouite rugs (say ''bou sje reed'') are made in the 70s and early 80s by Moroccan Berber women, for domestic use. A functional and decorative object in their homes. Since the 50s nomadism is increasingly disappearing, and wool produced by sheepherding has been much reduced. Because wool is becoming rarer in Morocco, they started to use recycled synthetic materials such as scraps of cotton, nylon, lurex and occasionally wool. They worked intuitively so every Moroccan Boucherouite rug is a signature of the woman who made the Moroccan scrap rug. Each Boucherouite rug will have a different pattern. No two will ever be alike.
This carpet has a small number of spots that are thinly woven through wear. (See pictures) You don't see it when it's laying on the floor. Only when you hold it in the air.
