BOUCHEROUITE CARPET

SELECTED BY HAY

INFOZOOM

Boucherouite means strips or scraps in Moroccan Arabic, and the name tells the story of these carpets, which are woven of various textiles cut into strips –clothes, rugs, rags; anything the creative craftswomen can find and reuse in their weaving.

Boucherouite also tell the story of a people transformed since the 1960s, adapting from a nomadic existence as sheep-herders to an increasingly urban lifestyle. Wool was no longer the obvious choice, and the scarcity of resources in the cities made it necessary to find alternatives.

The Moroccan Boucherouite carpets are woven of a variety of materials in free-style patterns that the women make up as they work. Boucherouite carpets thus represent a free expressive art form, where the weavers combine colours and patterns in a modern and colourful mix of materials and ideas. Resulting in the bold, contemporary textures and vibrant aesthetics know to the Boucherouite carpet.
