Origins of our Antique and Tribal Rugs

[[clearspace]]

Showcasing an authentic indigenous character and woven by Berber tribes living much as they did centuries ago, our vintage Moroccan rugs are remarkably diverse in style,

but all share the characteristics of bold colour, thick shaggy pile, charming motifs and lively patterns of geometric elements.

Boucherouite Rugs

[[clearspace]]

In an era of mass-production it's nice to know every Boucherouite Rug is unique because they are handcrafted by highly skilled Berber women.

Each Boucherouite Rug is handmade between 15 - 30 years ago depending on the piece by semi-nomadic Berber communities in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.

The materials used in our Boucherouite Rugs include recycled rag strips and yarns from a variety of ‘found’ textile remnants including wool, cotton, synthetic fibres, Lurex, nylon and plastic.

This development started during the 1960s and 1970s in the plains – mainly settled by Arabs – around the towns of Beni Mellal and Boujad.

Berber people are unified because of shared language and location rather than ethnicity. The majority of North Africa's population is believed to be Berber in origin.

Unexpected Colour

It can be very intimating to start styling your home. The key to ground an otherwise all white or beige room without overwhelming yourself is to choose a colour palette and stick to it. Pick a theme colour and use it throughout your décor.

Individuality

Save me from another Kate Moss print! The choices you make, the time and dollars you spend furnishing your home shouldn't be wasted on fad fashion. Instead opt for timeless, unique pieces of functional art.
