Moroccan Boucherouite rugs are the ultimate bohemian interiors must have. A fusion of bright colours, shaggy texture, abstract or geometric designs and understated chic, these rugs are perfect for the hipsters out there who set trends rather than follow them.
For those who want their home furnishings to spark intrigue and conversation from guests, a Boucheroutie rug is the perfect style piece for any space. Their impressive colours and striking patterns are the ideal eye-catching focal point for a room. Handwoven in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco by talented Berber artisans, Boucherouite rugs are typically made from recycled mixed textiles. Wool, cotton, pre-used clothing, synthetic fibres, and textile scraps can be used to create the striking designs.
Each design or pattern has a different meaning to the person who weaved it, often symbolising such things as fertility, traditions, home, life’s path, or protection from evil. When you style a room with a Moroccan Boucheroutie rug, you place a piece of the weaver’s life story in the very heart of your home.
When modern industries began to impact nomadic herding traditions, the practice of using wool to make the rugs transformed into recycling available synthetics and nylon, which contributed to the birth of the Boucherouite. This use of recycled materials makes for some truly unique and stunning designs, colours, and styles.
Originally made for modest domestic use in Berber homes, the popularity of the rugs rose in the 90s to become commercialised along with other styles of Moroccan Rugs. Boucherouite is the Moroccan term for “rag” and now regularly features in leading interiors magazines and publications.
They are a maximalist’s dream: bright colours, bold designs, and a satisfyingly shaggy texture. They are unapologetically ostentatious but utterly stylish, making them the ideal statement piece for any home. Their trendy yet vintage style lends them true versatility, providing a stunning piece of art into the home.
Boucherouite rugs also have the added benefit of being machine washable and so easy to maintain and keep in tip-top condition.
