Our one-of-a-kind, “Sprite” is a vintage Moroccan pillow. It was handmade using a mid-century Boucherouite rug and a Kilim rug. The colorful Boucherouite is on the face of the pillow and a cream and beige flat weave material is on the back. Boucherouite rugs are handwoven with wool, but this particular kind of rug has recycled materials like cotton, synthetics and wool fibers woven into it as well. The result is a whimsical piece of art.
Weaving rugs is one of the oldest Moroccan traditions and it is truly an art form. Each rug tells a unique story told by the weaver using specific symbols or colors. The techniques and symbols used by the weaver were passed down generation to generation. While the rugs were used to protect the body from the elements they were also meant to protect the spirit from negative energy.
Spot clean minor dirt or stains. If a deeper cleaning is required, have the pillow professionally hand washed. Do not use bleach, steam or dry-clean.
