This oversized and richly coloured Boucherioute rug, or typically known as a "Rag Rug", was designed in Berlin and handmade by our Berberlin Women's Initiative using recycled cloth. Later adopted into the Berber weaving tradition, the Boucherioute rug has a beautifully thick and heavy shag pile giving it its popular 60's bohemian aesthetic.
There is a mixture of diamond and triangular symbols in turquoise, green, blue, yellow, red and white set amongst a checkered backing. Each colour block of reds, teal to greens, pinks, blues and purple individually shifts with a slight gradient of colour from which highlights the textures in the rug. Our Boucherioute rug "Alya" will definitely add a wow factor to any space.
Each Berber rug has been sustainably made with raw materials to create durability to be used for many years, using the same traditional techniques that have been past down from generation to generation throughout antiquity.
