I have scavenged the internet to figure out the Moroccan Rag Rug Technique (Boucharouette) with no hits. I even went down to my library, and there was no information.  Does anyone know how to do this or where to find a good resource.  Here is an example on anthropologie.com:

I have an idea and I really want to make my own.  I have a rigid heddle loom, but I'm not going to try this alone.

I wish I could feel one/see one in person.  They almost don't look woven, so much as some form of latch hooking or lacth weaving.  I'm truely of no help, but hop you find what you are looking for!

Just found this video:

It looks like a combo of latch technique and weaving, very time intensive!

cool! thank you for sharing what you found!  That's totally neato.  And it does look time consuming, but the effect is gorgeous.

Thanks for sharing! I've been curious about these beautiful rugs too. I love the mix of textiles and colors, and they're quite trendy. I thought I'd try imitating it with a latch-hook method, but rug canvas is so rigid, I don't think it would have that lovely softness and drape. Is there a mesh material that's softer, but still durable?

I started making one! Smiley



It's kinda small, but I'm totally in love with it. I "built" the "loom" out of parts from a clothes rack and a wire shelf thing. I was hoping the rug would come out wider, but it really tightened in as I was weaving. So anyway, if you were thinking of trying to make one, it's definitely doable so you should rig up some sort of loom and just go for it! Smiley
