Since the 60s and 70s, Boucherouite rugs have been made by Berber Tribal people, predominantly women, using rags such as strips of recycled clothing and fabric. The Berber tribes were originally forced to reuse old fabrics due to a scarcity of wool during this period of time but have since become popular due to their diversity and variety in colour and pattern.
Boucherouite rugs are machine washable and extremely versatile, so great for festivals, picnics or outdoor meditation.
Our kids range feature smaller, colourful rugs, chosen to suit the mini sanctuary’s of our mini people. They act as a great way to encourage children to have their own personal ‘quiet place’ from a young age. Here they can reflect, meditate or read their favourite books, ready to become calm and thoughtful big people! In this range we also have cushions and poufs that are particularly colourful, perfect for little ones.
All of our rugs are handmade by various tribes in the Atlas Mountains, Morocco. They are both vintage and contemporary, and have been carefully hand selected by us to ensure the highest quality and style. Each rug is one of a kind and has its own story, often taking the Berber women months to make.

Although we hand select all our rugs to ensure the highest quality, they often feature 'imperfections' due to the way in which they're made, by hand in Berber villages. They may be uneven in shape, feature imbalanced patterns or faded in colour. This is a sign of the history and personal love that has gone into the making of each rug, so only adds to its value and character.
