Vintage Boucherouite Rug-Bernice

AMAZING piece, and one of my favorites in my collection. Gorgeous feminine and masculine colors throughout, with a stunning design, that has both focus and whimsy. The white rectangle in the middle of the rug is the favorite part of this rug for me, as it's unexpected, yet mimics the pink and black shapes near the fringe.

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.
