Boucherouite, (pronounced boo-shay-reet), is a rug style specific to rural tribes of Morocco.
Hand-loomed by Berber women from recycled remnants including cotton, synthetic fibres and occasionally wool and plastic, these remarkable one-of-a-kind creations are celebrated for their improvisatory patterns and soul-stirring shades.
Unlike most European techniques, the boucherouite, also known as the “rag rug”, is not based on a predetermined pattern or design. Rather, it is created at the whim of its weaver whose choice of colours and textures impart an emotive painterly feel.
The universal beauty of these tribal textiles has seen them transcend the realm of domesticity in recent times to that of the gallery, testament that the boucherouite is equally at home on the wall as it is underfoot.
