THIS RUG'S STORY:
The Beni Ourain tribe is located in the Middle Atlas region of Morocco. This rug's name means "drink of water", and it is indeed so refreshing and soft. Its pattern is beautifully intricate with subtle peach accents. Beni Ourain's typically are made with criss-crossing lines and diamond motifs, but this one is interesting since the diamond is especially wide and detailed. Even though this rug is vintage, the colors and style is very relevant in today's home decor. Hand selected in Morocco, this rug is a simple yet stunning work of art.
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 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.
