Vintage Wool Boucherouite Pouf
D 25" x H 8.5"
Boucherouite means “rag” in Moroccan Arabic and are often simply just called ‘berber’.
Boucherouite poufs are made by Moroccan Berber women, for domestic use. And production of wool from sheepherding has been much reduced. Because wool became rarer in Morocco, they started to use recycled synthetic materials such as scraps from different textiles, wool and cotton.
