Morocco's handicraft has become known worldwide for its wool rugs, especially Beni Ourain rugs, made by semi-nomadic Berber herders. This tribal weaving art, with its asymmetric and improvisatory patterns and neutral color appearance is far away of urban influences, but it can match seamlessly many Western design projects... Like these rugs, the Boucherouite rugs, also called Rag rugs, reflects the force of improvisatory approach and go beyound : unruly styles, exuberance of vibrant colors, contrasting varieties of materials. The word Boucherouite means teared, reused clothing. Boucherouite rugs are made of pieces of cotton or synthetic fabrics, of ribbons, fibers, threads.Woven, knotted or stitched by women, they are initially made for domestic family use. The surface of the carpets shows an exceptional variety of textures too. Some items are shaggy ones, with relatively large pieces of reused clothing. Other Boucherouite rugs, made of threads, are smooth and soft underfoot. Color charts are daring, extravagant, so people often use these rugs as wall hanging artworks.
