Boucherouite Rug

250.00

A soft pastel hued vintage Berber rug dating from around about the 1980s, created entirely from recycled clothes and fabrics. Boucherouite (pronounced boo-shay-REET), is a word meaning in Arabic ‘a piece torn from used clothing’, or a ‘scrap’. Wonderfully extravagant in color, these Berber rugs make use of rag strips and yarns from recycled clothes, wool, cotton and even Lurex, threads of plastic cut from grain-transport bags, and nylon. Where original vegetable dyes were on the whole subtle, the dyes in these scraps are much brighter and bolder. The rugs can feature asymmetrical patterning and free-form shapes based on the tribal symbols and motifs used in wool carpets, such as lozenges, small squares, and chevron shapes. This lovely rug is washed and clean. It has restorations along the centre and some small areas of wear, all testifying to its originality and authenticity

Size: 1.77m by 91cm
