The Boucherouite rug (taken from the Arabic word ‘bu sherwit meaning, ‘a piece torn from used clothing’) is a magical colorful work of art, hand crafted by women in remote villages in Morocco. Also known as ‘rag rugs’, the Boucherouite rug can be found in cities in Marrakesh, Beni Mellal and Azilal however the authentic vintage rugs can only be found in Berber villages high in the Atlas Mountains.

Boucherouite rugs first emerged around the 1950's, woven from pre-used clothing or scrap materials hence the name, and were used as blankets and wraps to keep warm especially during the harsh winter that the Atlas Mountains bring. The rugs are traditionally made from a mixture of thousands of scraps of used materials such as nylon, cotton and often wool. The stunning mixture of materials adds to the unique texture and design of these colorful pieces of modern art. Since the 90’s these rugs have become popular and can add character to any home.

I remember as a young child visiting the Berber villages with my father and seeing for myself the women wearing or sun drying their pieces and loving the beautiful colors and never seeing 2 rugs alike. Each Boucherouite has its own personality, passed down from the women themselves who made it. The rugs represent beauty, strength, family, livelihood and everything that is good in society today.

I travel by motorcycle weekly to visit Berber villages in the Atlas Mountains to source only traditional and authentic pieces and ensure that they are all of a high quality.
