While traveling one summer on the coast of Morocco, I stumbled upon an amazing collection of Moroccan boucherouite. The weaving in these pieces is second to none, and each was truly a work of art. I love this one for the vivid colors and teapots, and can only imagine the story the weaver was telling as she created this masterpiece.

The boucherouite rug is a new invention 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 indeed a work of art, each unique to the weaver and the region, and there are no two rugs alike.
