Vintage Moroccan Boucherouite Rug-Waldo

 

Moroccan boucherouite runners are rare, and those under 3 feet are a particularly lovely size to encounter. This one has the gorgeous muted black and turquoise as well.  

  • Size: 2'8"x9'2"/33"x110"/83x279 cm
    • Material: Wool
    • Colors: Black, Blue, Pink, Yellow 
    • 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.
