Moroccan Boucherioute Rugs: From Rags to Riches

Posted on February 09, 2016 by Sarah McBean | 0 comments

From Pinterest to Apartment Therapy to Design Sponge, it’s no denying that Moroccan Boucherouite rugs have a special ability, a gift you may say, to transform a space.  Although they have only recently become popular on the world stage, Boucherouites have been produced in Morocco since the 1960's. When Sheep wool production began to decline, it forced Berber weavers to come up with new and inventive ways to make handmade rugs.  

These beauties are made of recycled fabrics, making them a green alternative to tranditional handmade wool rugs. All authentic Boucherioute rugs are made in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, produced in mountain villages with traditional handmade processes.

Their vibrant colours and free form designs, allow for personal expression, and work perfectly with modern, contemporary and bohemian decor. Boucherioutes have become synonymous with their ability to add that  "pop" of colour to any space, and they are guaranteed to produce jaw dropping comments from friends and family!

We have included some of our favourite spaces featuring Boucherioute Rugs :)  You can also check them out now in our shop under medium rugs!
