From Morocco

This is a "boucherouite" (boo-shay-REET) rug, made in Morocco - made of torn and used clothing. Read more about these in a NY Times article about an exhibition earlier this year, "Rags to Richesse". There are photos with the article, and a slide show.

  1. Thanks for sharing this article from NY Times. The slide show is interesting too. Good to see a close view of the rugs.

    Each rug seems to tell a story....

  2. Have been collecting them for a while, during my monthly trips to morocco. Just fabulous, so fabulous that I will "share" (make available) many pieces for boucherouite-lovers like me ;-)
