Using authentic crafts handed down through generations, women from villages in the Moroccan Sahara transform your beloved wardrobe into a vibrant 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.
Each Carpet of Life is hand-woven by women from different villages in the oasis of M’hamid El Ghizlane – transforming your beloved wardrobe into a vibrant, inspiring artwork you can cherish forever.
