San Francisco’s Tribal & Textile Arts Show added an exclamation point to my weekend and gave me a new piece of vocabulary: Boucherouite, Morocco’s unique incarnation of the rag rug. The Austrian gallery Blazek had a booth full of amazing Moroccan carpets at the show,  along with literature about Boucherouite. Click here for their write-up on the art form, and for additional images.

Alberto Levi (previously posted about here) was also at the show and is another source for carpets of this kind.
