In Morocco, the Arab word "Boucherouite" means 'a piece torn from pre-used clothing scrap'. Traditionally in Morocco, wool was predominantly used to make rugs, however due to the decline in nomadic herding, and from the 1960's onwards, people started to use materials other than wool to make rugs. The materials used included rag strips and yarns from a variety of "found" textile remnants, including cotton, synthetic fires, lurex, nylon and plastic. This rug is a combination of wool and remnant fabrics and the colours chosen are bright and vibrant against the more traditional natural wool fibre. Old and new merge to create this beautiful piece of art work that would sit nicely in any modern home. The rectangle shape is means it would fit perfectly at the end of a bed or under a coffee table.
