Boucharouite Museum, Marrakech

Specialty Museum · Hidden Gem · Museum
Treasuring all kinds of folk art, Boucharouite Museum is known for its collection of woven and embroidered carpets, also known as rag rugs. See how Moroccan and Berber women from remote villages--bereft of elementary education--find the means to express their creativity by weaving countless knots into intricate color schemes. These women use pieces of their ragged clothes to create a rag rug--the ancient recycling technique earned their product the nickname "the carpet for the poor." The museum often hosts inspiring special events, such as "duels" between Berber storytellers and French comedians.

  • This place was pretty small, and it looked like the inside of someones home (and there was children running around without any supervision???). The carpets we did see were cool, just not a lot there.
