THIS RUG'S STORY:
This Beni Ourain masterpiece may just be my favorite rug from last year's haul! It has a timeless simple design, the wool is in excellent condition, and the border details are so incredible! Also, with his width coming in greater than 7', this rug's wide size makes it a highly sought after vintage piece.
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.
