Vintage Boucherouite Rug-Bessie

I have a penchant for deeply colored boucherouites, with black and grey as my favorites. I love how this rug has a variegated color in the darks, an ombre really if you trace the colors from the base of the rug with the mustard motifs, to the top, and then an overlay of pinks, whites and mustards to make it playful. 

  • Size: 4'1"x6'11"/49"x83"/124x211cm
  • Material: Wool and Cotton
  • Colors: Black, white, pink, blue
  • Age/Condition Good condition. This is a vintage piece, from 30-40 years ago, which has been professionally cleaned and repaired, but please expect one-of a kind imperfections that add to their wonderful history. 

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.
