Vintage Moroccan “Beni Ourain” rug
What is a "Beni Ourain" rug??
It is a style of rug made by the "Beni Ourain tribal" people who live in the Middle Atlas Mountains of Morocco where an ancient breed of sheep can be found. The sheep produce excellent high quality wool, which is what makes these rugs so special.
These magnificent rugs connect the long history of the nomadic Berber tribes with modern day interiors as they sit perfectly in any modern home. The lives of the makers are all part of the process, and usually women weave the rugs so elements of their lives are reflected in the designs. The main characteristic of a "Beni Ourain" rug is its "shaggy" pile, which makes them so comfy underfoot and a perfect winter rug!
