The Boucherouite (pronounced boo-shay-reet) emanates from the Arabic term bu sherwit, which means “a scrap from used clothing.” The Berbers of Morocco began making this type of rugs in the 60s and 70s, the main inspiration being their need rather than fashion. Like most of our Berber rugs, our Boucherouite rugs are also mostly woven by women. Because of this, they feature some of the most pleasant designs whereas international and commercial trade designs are normally not the first consideration while making them.

The Boucherouite carpet is timeless in design, extravagant in color, and all-time irresistible. This carpet brings to life pieces of old clothing that appears to find a home in the divine creativity in these carps whose name means “scrap” or “a piece torn from old clothes.” The flourishing of these Moroccan rugs ushers in the end of an era where rugs were predominantly made using wool as the main material. These developments have a great influence on the cultural, social and economic outlook in the rural areas of Morocco.
