Lately boucherouite rugs have been a bit of a designer favorite. They've been cropping up on blogs all over — you can spot some examples of rooms with boucherouite rugs on Apartment Therapy here. If these colorful Moroccan rag rugs catch your fancy, here's a list of places where you can find one of your own.

Traditionally, these rugs were created with bits of leftover textiles in places where raw materials were rare — a beautiful and resourceful way to recycle. Today, Berber women continue the tradition, crafting rugs in an eye-popping array of colors and wild patterns. Western mass-produced versions of these rugs are becoming available, but if you purchase an actual Moroccan rug you'll have something that's truly one of a kind. And you don't have to go all the way to the souk to do it.
