This rug comes from a small shop in Marrakech that works with a collective of women, weaving boucherouite rugs. They decided to incorporate new materials and colors, particularly deep eggplant and turquoise, and the result is stunning. This rug is absolutely unique which I love.
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.
