Boucherouite carpets are Morocco's recycled carpets and have become more popular in Morocco in recent years. Once the "carpet of the poor", it is now becoming an individual design classic worldwide. Boucherouite comes from the Arabic word "Shraouit", which refers to all the recycled fabric scraps, often cotton but also synthetic fibers and occasionally also wool or recycled wool. The tradition of Shraouite weaving is due to the lack of sheep's wool, which is comparatively more expensive in Morocco. Berber families first started making Boucherouite knots by recycling old clothing. It is in the material itself that this is exactly how incredibly colorful and unique works of art are created, which are also absolutely sustainable. Both weaving and knotting are used, resulting in a very high-quality fabric.
