This rug technique is called Boucherouite (pronounced boo-shay-reet). These pieces are made from yarn, recycled clothing, or even textile scraps. Boucherouite rugs are often used in weavers’ own homes. In fact, this style of rug wasn’t traditionally sold but their vibrant, playful nature has made them popular.
