This is a soft woollen rug made by the Beni Ouarain tribe circa the year 2000. The white woollen pile is embellished with coloured textile and cotton knots which add texture and vibrancy to this beautiful rug. A conversation piece.

Breaking all the rules of carpet design, boucherouite rugs are simply unique. They are often made in mountainous areas where wool is scarce. By adding pieces of material, yarn from recycled clothing, as well as wool, to the traditional cotton weft, an abstract design and form like no other is created. Sometimes the weft itself is also made from textiles. Amazigh (Berber) women from all over the mountainous regions of Morocco make these carpets and may incorporate their own imaginative stance, tribal symbols and beliefs into their creation. Colours and patterns are blended to produce truly stunning works of art. In our collection we have vintage boucherouite rugs from several regions of Morocco. Many of these would look amazing as either floor rugs or as artistic wall hangings.
