THIS RUG'S STORY:
This Beni Ourain kilim rug is an interesting mix of both looped pile, and flat woven stripes. The stripes have an alternating arrow pattern, which is a nice modern touch! It's not often we find kilims from this tribe, as most of their rugs have longer pile.
ABOUT MOROCCAN RUGS:
Each vintage Moroccan rug is hand woven and knotted by Berber women of the tribal region specified. This level of craftsmanship can take up to weeks or months to complete a single rug. Weaving techniques have been passed down through the generations. The patterns, designs, and colors in each rug vary with each rug, weaver, and tribe – so each piece is truly a unique work of art and 2 pieces will never be the same. Often these rugs have been handed down through the families who created them, and have been uncovered from the mountain and rural areas of Morocco.

**PLEASE NOTE: this rug is NOT stark white, but more of a creamy background consistent with natural wool.
