The Story Behind the Weave:Due to COVID-19, we're introducing a new way to buy never-before-seen rugs. We’re calling it Artisan Selects. We’ve asked our artisans to take pictures and share some of their favorite weaves. This piece is from a beautiful collective of women artisans just outside of Tazenakht.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.
