  • Curator's Notes

    Motifs
    • Moroccan rugs don’t come with a key. As with any painting or poem, their motifs have many subjective interpretations. Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life
    • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
    • The bold, balanced simplicity of color-blocking is reminiscent of abstract art canvases
    Region of Origin

    Unlike most Moroccan rug names, Boucherouite refers to the style of the rug, not to its location of origin. These rugs are woven across the country and are so-called for their materiality: bu sharwit is a Moroccan Arabic term meaning 'piece of cloth'. Much like quilting, these pieces are made up of many scraps of fabric to create a whole much greater than the sum of its parts.

    Material Details

    Reflective of the ever-shifting post-modern, post-consumer landscape, these 'everything rugs' are woven with colorful miscellaneous fiber scraps. In this piece, a mixed-fiber pile is knotted onto a strong cotton foundation.
