Moroccan selection

Around 1950 in the vast area of the Moroccan Central Plateau, on the slopes of the High Atlas, which includes the city of Beni Mellal Boujad and mostly populated by ethnic groups of Arab origin, finding traditional yarns proved to be very difficult, thus causing the local weavers, driven by necessity, to look for other materials in order to continue to produce articles for domestic use. First unused garments, tattered blankets and tissues were cut into strips that had sufficient size to be used both to tie and to make the structure of the carpet; the term Boucherouite (from the dialect “boucharouette”) means “torn material.” The search for fabrics at little to no cost, has led the weavers to use materials of the most disparate backgrounds and origins, forcing them to compare unknown color shades to traditional yarns, which were still dyed with natural dyes. At this point an unexpected interaction between necessity, courage and creative autonomy was realized.

The history of Boucherouite

Art in Bocherouite

There is an innate creative vitality that is able to express itself by becoming true art. It happens to be that this art does not have the awareness of being nor yearns to be recognized as such, far from any form of definition and abstract concepts that do not belong to it. The ability to surprise and the expressionism is what is fascinating about the Moroccan Boucherouit carpets. Presenting and codifying this wonderful selection of carpets, we are able to recognize the intrinsic aesthetic value and artistic value, we are able to understand the wild poetry and see them as an object of art.
