  • 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 Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life
    • Depending on who you ask, the X symbol stands for the body (wih arms or legs spread out), or scissors, which represent the protective, magical qualities of metal
    • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and simple shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
    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

    This rug is called a boucherouite, which derives from bu sharwit, a Moroccan Arabic term meaning 'piece of cloth'. Reflective of the ever-shifting post-modern, post-consumer landscape, these 'everything rugs' are woven with colorful miscellaneous fiber scraps. In this piece, a wool pile is knotted onto mixed-fiber wefts and textured wool warps.

    Moroccan wool is locally sourced and produces a thick, strong pile that feels soft underfoot. Having stood the test of time, this hand-processed wool has reacted to its various environments, acquiring an untamed, nubby look and feel.
