Final workshop for the Boucherouite bags competition in Morocco
Students from LISAA Fashion in Nantes and Paris met students from the l’Académie des Arts Traditionnels in Morocco for the final workshop of the Pulse 2 Boucherouite Bags competition, organised by Dar Islie, where they revisited Moroccan Boucherouite leatherwork and weaving.
A FUSION OF MOROCCAN CRAFT AND CONTEMPORARY STYLE
From the 20th to 23rd April, the final workshop for the Pulse 2 # Boucherouite Bags competition organised by DAR ISLIE, house of Moroccan savoir-faire, in Casablanca, brought together weaving and leatherwork students from the Académie des Arts Traditionnels (Fondation de la mosquée Hassan II) and fashion students from LISAA Nantes and Paris. From their meeting, a contemporary double-material bag was created, revisiting Moroccan Boucherouite – tribal Berber rugs from Morocco.
Organised and financed by DAR ISLIE, this competition aims to highlight Moroccan artisanal heritage and to transmit its techniques. Launched in September 2015, this project has led to the co-creation of several bag prototypes mixing traditional Boucherouite weaving and leatherwork.
A FULLY REALISED PROJECT
This French-Moroccan competition has allowed two LISAA students, Jade Le Creour and Alice Wood, to realise their projects with their Moroccan colleagues.
