Moroccan Boucherouite rugs are the ultimate bohemian interiors must have. A fusion of bright colours, shaggy texture, abstract or geometric designs and understated chic. They are 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. 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 often symbolising such things as fertility, traditions, home, life’s path or protection from evil. When modern industries began to impact nomadic herding traditions the practice of using wool to make the rugs transformed to re-cycling available synthetics and nylon which contributed to the birth of the Boucherouite.
Originally made for modest domestic use in Berber homes, the popularity of the rugs rose in the 90s to become commercialized along with other styles of Moroccan Rugs. Boucherouite a Moroccan term for ‘rag’, now regularly feature 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. Boucherouite rugs also have the added benefit of being machine washable and so easy to maintain.
