the ground beneath my feet.
you know i tried to go all black and white and minimal when i moved into the cottage, right? well that didn’t last long. i don’t know if i’ve got spring fever or what, but i’ve gone bold, people. i still love my souk rug, so i simply moved it to the bedroom, and then — wait for it — i went in the complete opposite direction and added a couple of moroccan Boucherouite rugs — which are a riot of color! these two are from the Beldi rugs shop — beldi is a Moroccan word meaning traditional, rural and natural. and These are vintage rugs, some dating back to the 1940s and 50s — so these rugs have soul.
Beldi rugs are hand-crafted and They were usually made from a variety of textiles in “rag rug” style, so they’re machine-washable (which makes them much more Lucy-friendly!) and easy to maintain. pinks, blues, reds and yellows – all jostling for attention in wildly funky patterns, sometimes geometric, sometimes totally abstract. Each beldi rug is completely unique — an authentic piece of folk art traditionally hand-woven by a married woman after she’s had children– working on it each day, with patience and love, sometimes for as a long as a year. As such, beldi rugs are rooted in the culture and landscape that produced them. I’m completely smitten by these happy rugs! There’s a whole range of Beldi rugs so have a look at their site for other types, like BENI OUARAIN, BOUJAD and AZILAL. coming up next? a brand new bold piece of artwork is being framed. stay tuned for that.
