The Story Behind the Weave:This rug comes from a village outside of Asni and was made by Khadija.We first met Khadijah over a year ago at the women's only market held every Monday in the center of town. Khadija is an expert in the Boucherouite (pronounced boo-shay-reet) weave. This rug style is made of various recycled clothing and textile scraps. These rugs were not originally intended to be sold as they were mostly used in the weavers’ own homes.Khadija collects old clothes from her village as well as textile scraps from local tailors. After washing, she tears them apart, sets up the loom, and then makes knots with the torn fabric. In total, Khadija spent three weeks executing an extra vibrant accent rug, ready to bring color to any home.
