Moroccans didn't weave with American rug sizes in mind, so sometimes you have to be creative when you can find a rug that fits one dimension you need (10') but not the other! I recommend considering creative ways of styling, including layering. Look to my gallery or Instagram for some inspiration if you'd like to see how to make this beautiful piece work! It's hard to find such a big and beautiful boucherouite in Morocco, so treasure it always!

The boucherouite rug is a new invention 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 indeed a work of art, each unique to the weaver and the region, and there are no two rugs alike.
