This is certainly one of the favorite rugs that I have in my boucheruoite collection presently. The strong yellow line is such a lovely anchor, and I particularly love the turquoise and red squares that run adjacent to the yellow.
- Size: 4'3"x6'/51"x72"/129x182 cm
- Material: Wool and Cotton
- Colors: White, blue, red, yellow, green, coffee
- Age/Condition: Good condition. This is a vintage rug, made approximately 30-40 years ago. It 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.
