Meaning "unique" in Arabic, Farid is a Beni Ourain in a very unique smaller size. Typically Beni's are very large so finding one this size is a nice treat! His pile is looped, and in spots it has been worn down. But he is unlike any other Beni I've ever seen with his pattern and size. I estimate him to be 50 years or older. He would make a wonderful addition to an Entry or as an accent in a small seating area. Or even hung on a wall as a true work of art! I hand selected this piece in Morocco in the Spring of 2019.
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.

*Please note: this rug is NOT white, but more of a cream color that is consistent with undyed wool. Hand knotted wool with cotton.
