This vintage Beni Ourain beauty reminds me of a snow leopard, she has a creamy background with dark gray/taupe colored spots. The pile is very plush with high shaggy pile! Coming in right around 5x8', this rug would make a great size in a seating area, living space, kids room.
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.
