Vintage Moroccan Boucherouite Rug-Presley

 

There are some pieces that just escape words, and for me this is one. But if I try-I'd say that the unusual color scheme is the most striking piece of this rug, the the olive green, blues, and orange. 

  • Size: 4'9"x6'2"/57"x74"/144x187 cm
  • Material: Wool and cotton
  • Colors: Green, Blue, Olive
  • 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.
