Boucherouite rugs tell stories of creativity, imagination and resilience.
The word “Boucherouite” means “made of rags”. They were born as an original solution to difficulties. When wool was too expensive, Amazigh craftswomen did not give up. They continued to make carpets for their homes, recycling old fabrics used by their loved ones. Each Boucherouite was a very personal creation, which told the story of the family: the older brother's first dress, the little sister's summer skirt, the grandfather's djellaba, the dress worn by the artisan for an important party...
These sustainable and durable carpets are still made with recycled fabrics: old wool carpets, clothes made of cotton or synthetic fibers such as nylon, fabric scraps... any rag can be recycled and become part of a unique and original! They no longer have the status of "humble carpet" but are found in museums, by collectors and in the homes of those who love objects with a strong personality.
Boucherouites bring joy and liveliness to every room of the house. They are perfect for giving character to a simple bathroom or a modern kitchen.
