About Boucherouite Rugs: The Boucherouite rug (taken from the Arabic word ‘bu sherwit meaning, ‘a piece torn from used clothing’) are made by Berber women in the Atlas Mountains region of Morocco. Woven from rags and scraps of fabric, they represent the results of widespread economic, social and cultural changes in Morocco’s rural areas. These rugs are bright and colorful, and no two are alike. Because they are vintage they may have imperfections, which add to the charm. They are truly one-of-a-kind!
