During my purchasing trips to Morocco, I always look for beautiful unique pieces that can fit nicely into our escape concept.
I bid along with the local merchants on the criée berbère of the carpet souks in the heart of Marrakech, which means that most of the intermediate channels are skipped!
The boucherouite rug cannot be machine washed.
Cleaning is possible with vacuuming / whipping and using traditional methods with water and brown soap. Let it dry patiently in the sunshine.
