THIS RUG'S STORY:
This adorable vintage Beni Ourain rug is a lovely rug I handselected back in 2019. It is in excellent condition, and the pile is so soft! The colors of brown and pink are both warming and feminine, and the minimal diamond pattern paves the way for a timeless design.
Also worth mentioning is the lovely border details visible from the back. You can see it in the last 2 photos in the listing, but this is a nice little bonus feature!
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 with medium brown and faded pink. Hand knotted wool with cotton.
**Please note: this rug is NOT stark white, but more of a creamy background, that is consistent with the color of natural wool
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - estimated to be from the 1980's/90's - excellent condition
SIZE: 64x97" with tassels (slightly wider at one end)
PLEASE NOTE: Because this is a handmade item, there may be slight imperfections in weaving, pattern, or shape. Please note all vintage items have endured a previous life and so may have slight wear and repairs.
