Boucherouite Rugs are the proof of the old saying “waste not, want not”. They are woven in the traditional way by Berbers and the materials are of recycled textiles such as cotton, nylon and sometimes a little wool. They were of no commercial value and were in use in Berber huts and tents to provide warmth and colour. Each piece is completely unique as there are no preconceived designs and no limit to the imagination of the weaver. They are fascinating creations of form and colour and wonderful inexpensive floor and divan covers. There are those who use small ones as wall hangings and claim that they are every bit as captivating as a Klee painting- but for a tiny fraction of the price. We keep five groups of Boucherouite rugs and a cross section of each is shown below.
