"Boucherouite" Moroccan Rug

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A Moroccan rug, woven entirely with cut-up pieces of fabric from old clothes, boucherouite means rag or torn cloth in Moroccan Arabic. A relatively recent phenomenon, such weavings are products of socio-economic changes in Moroccan society, with nomadic tribes settling in towns, abandoning animal husbandry and losing access to wool. A very creative, artistic response by talented Moroccan women to changing life circumstances.
