To call a boucherouite a rug is a wild understatement! ‘Artisanal masterpiece’ or ‘work of art’ are more the terms that come to mind…

These one-of-a-kind masterpieces are specific to the rural Berber tribes of Morocco and are made by hand using recycled remnants of fabric. Aside from the obvious lessons we can learn here in resourcefulness and recycling, perhaps the most magical lesson to be learned is the beauty of free expression. The pattern, style and colours are at the whim of the weaver! Ranging from sublimely subdued to inspiringly vibrant, each boucherouite is as striking as the next and charmingly imperfect. A masterclass in liberation from the moulds of perfection!

Use your boucherouite to add playfulness to your space – whether it be as a floor covering, wall hanging or decorative bedcover. We’ve curated the most magical collection of boucherouites, with more becoming available every week. Shop the look here!

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I have a severe case of Birkenstocks on my mind. Literally cannot stop thinking about them.

We can thank Celine for the unpredicted revival of these both cool and ugly sandals, which many of us had probably written off for good.

I owned three pairs when I was 14, but threw them away for fear of the embarrassment I’d cause myself if I continued to wear them. However, my secret love of them never waned! As soon as the weather heats up I’ll be proudly wearing the Arizona style with my latest purchase – the Acne Pop Betty boyfriend jeans … What do you think of them? Camp love or camp hate?
