The Story Behind the Weave:This piece was made by Biya.
Biya belongs to the Association Le Vieux Village which is a beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht. Naima, pictured, is the leader of the collective women weavers.
This weaving style is called Boucherouite.
Boucherouite (pronounced boo-shay-reet) rugs were not originally intended to be sold as they were mostly used by the Berbers in their own homes, as modest carpets. Some called them 'rag rugs' as they are made of various recycled pre-used clothing or textile scraps.This piece is a combination yarn, fabric and wool.
You will find some light fraying on either end due its lifespan. We've put patches on these spots. With continued proper care, this rug will continue to endure for decades to come.
