Boucherouite Carpets - 160 x 107 cm - Ceutat - 2389
Morocco is famous for its vibrant colors. Boucherouite carpets (also called Boucharouite or Boucharette) are no different. These rugs appeared in the 60's when wool became rare and the textile industry started booming.
Tribal berber families lost their shepherds who moved to the city. Women decided to use the cotton available to them. This would explain the variety of colors and types. The rugs were made of the old djellaba of the grandfathers or shirts of their husbands.
The family history merged with the creation of a beautiful artistic rug that could be used by the household. Scandinavian decoristas started to blog about it. Japan as well. The rest is history. The fact is each piece is unique and the riot of color that a Boucherouite carpet brings to interiors is beautifully exuberant.
