The boucherouite is a Moroccan ‘rag rug’ made by hand from all kinds of recycled materials, including plastic, nylon,and lurex. Made for local use, these extraordinary weavings break away from traditional North African conventions of design, texture, and colour; they also raise many intriguing questions about changes in socio-economic conditions and the impact of western culture on traditional societies.
