Boucharouite Museum, Marrakech

4.7
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.

  • A very nice museum not to be missed. It's a treat. Superb riad with a perfect staging of carpets woven by Moroccan women who are real artists.
