Berber-Arts has a nice little collection of images of Moroccan rag rugs, called boucherouite – from the Moroccan Arabic bu sherwit, “a piece torn from pre-used clothing.” I like the look of the slightly shaky geometric patterns.

    Before only in art galleries. Now available online ( at Etsy.
    Another example of democracy in design thanks to the internet and social media. The wildness and uniqueness are still there but availability is way wider now.
    I have seen these rugs in the past two editions of Elle Decor France. Is it just “momentum” or have we got a rug that really combines art&craft, anthropology&current social context? Gorgeous pieces on the post.
