Finding larger boucherouite rugs is not always easy, but on my winter, 2019 sourcing trip I found a handful of big and beautiful boucherouites, Ms. Evelyn being one of them. This rug would make a wonderful addition to any child's room or playroom, and has the double benefit of looking delightful and hiding all dirt and crumbs!
The boucherouite rug is a modern intervention in the long history of the Moroccan Berber rug, where whimsy meets the humble "rag rug." These rugs are made from recycled fibers, and can include cotton, wool, or synthetics. Designs are most often asymmetrical, with a color explosion that befits the wall of a modern home, rather than the dusty landscape of their origin. They are truly a work of art, each unique to the weaver and the region, and there are no two rugs alike.
