THIS RUG'S STORY:
This vintage Boujad Boucherouite is a real treat! I found her during my Fall 2018 sourcing trip in Morocco, and had to have her. Coming in a teeny tiny size of just under 2x4 feet, she would be perfect in a bathroom or kitchen. Those soft pinks, lavendar, cream and blue would be a great fit for the pastel lover.
Boucherouite rugs are often known as "rag rugs", being made many times from old cotton clothing, thread, or other items they may wish to recycle. He is made out of wool and also has cotton, a lovely combo that makes her a little more casual but so fun nonetheless!
ABOUT MOROCCAN RUGS:
Each vintage Moroccan rug is hand woven and knotted by Berber women of the tribal region specified. This level of craftsmanship can take up to weeks or months to complete a single rug. Weaving techniques have been passed down through the generations. The patterns, designs, and colors in each rug vary with each rug, weaver, and tribe – so each piece is truly a unique work of art and 2 pieces will never be the same. Often these rugs have been handed down through the families who created them, and have been uncovered from the mountain and rural areas of Morocco.
