THIS RUG'S STORY:
meaning "happy" in Arabic, this handsome Beni Ourain would be a stunning addition to any space. Coming in at just over 7' wide, this is one of the widest vintage Benis I have had in the shop! You probably cannot see it in the photo, but I loved the happy little teal spot that is found in the middle of the rug, boasting its handmade nature.
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: Cream, dark brown, taupe. Hand knotted wool.
**PLEASE NOTE: this rug is NOT stark white, but more of a creamy background consistent with natural wool.
