THIS RUG'S STORY:
This vintage Boujad Boucherouite is the star of the show! But for real, he packs a real punch.... a punch of color that is! I found him during my Fall 2018 sourcing trip in Marrakech, and could not look away. He has the prettiest blues, and a fun pattern that would be the perfect fit for an eccletic or modern home! 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 him a little more casual but so fun nonetheless! A true handwoven work of art, Paparrazi would be great in a kitchen or hallway.
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.
COLORS/MATERIALS: multi colored - creamy wool base with bright blue, turqouise, auburn, cranberry, yellow, orange, and red. Hand knotted wool and cotton mix. This one actually has some recycled plastic in the base too!
