A beautifully crafted vintage rug with the most distinctive patterns and soft yet bold colour palette Wonderfully extravagant in colour, these rugs make use of rag strips and yarns from recycled clothes, wool, cotton, Lurex, plastic cut from grain-transport bags, packing materials, and nylon. Where original vegetable dyes used in wool carpets were on the whole subtle and soft, the dyes in these scraps are much brighter and bolder. Boucherouite rugs can feature asymmetrical patterning and free-form shapes based on the tribal symbols and motifs used in wool carpets, such as a lozenge, small square, and chevron shapes. Yet with often unpredictable and helter-skelter compositions, it’s nearly impossible to discern the tribal variations between them.
