carpet of life


The Carpet of Life concept is based on traditional Moroccan carpets called Boucherouite or Boucherwi, made by most families from nomadic background. This craft is relying on instinct and experience rather than set design rules. Details are derived from nature, perfumes, sounds and tastes. Boucherouite carpets can be made from almost anything… second-hand clothing, tea towels, bed linen, even plastic! Current materials include recycled rag strips and yarns from ‘found’ textile remnants including wool, cotton, synthetic fibers, lurex and nylon.
