Doublesided Kilim Boucherouite L8
This kilim boucherouite is an example of native tribal art from Morocco. In recent decades, artisans have been using recycled materials and leftover textile scraps to create new and interesting rug designs. This doublesided rug in beautiful light shades of pink and green / teal will brighten up any living space.

During my purchasing trips to Morocco I always look for beautiful, unique pieces that fit nicely within our concept. I work with trustworthy suppliers who provide work to hundreds of women in the mountain areas. And I bid with the local merchants on the criée berbère of the carpet souks in the heart of Marrakech, skipping most intermediate channels!
Each rug is hand washed and (if necessary) repaired in Morocco before being shipped to Belgium. Any restorations were done by hand by skilled artisans in the traditional methods and with materials to best suit its origins.
Rugs should be vacuumed regularly, and occasionally hung outside in the sunshine and fresh air to freshen them up and get rid of any loose dirt. We recommend only ever using mild soapy water to spot clean your carpet. Chemical cleaners and vintage textiles are definitely not friends - so keep cleaning simple and to the basics.
If your rug is in need of a deeper clean due to spills or wear, contact a professional rug cleaning service in your area.
Due to their handwoven and unique nature - irregularities in shape and colour can be expected, and are what add to their beauty, character and value.
