THIS RUG'S STORY:
Beni Ourain rugs are probably my most requested, but also one of the hardest rugs to come by in the vintage world today! This one is so neat because it features a warm creamy base with red, amber, and golden honey tones, in a smaller size you don't see very often in this tribe. The warmth and richness of this piece is unmatched, it's unlike any other I've come across! It features silky wool and lower 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.
COLORS/MATERIALS: warm cream background with faded orange, red, brown.
*Please note: this rug is NOT white, but more of a cream color that is consistent with undyed wool. Hand knotted wool with cotton.
