Meaning "faded" in Moroccan Arabic, this stunning Beni Ourain rug does not disappoint. I love the traditional neutral diamond pattern that is so dark it's almost black on the one end and then fades slowly into a lighter gray, almost giving off an ombre effect. Such a lovely 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.

**PLEASE NOTE: this rug is NOT stark white, but more of a creamy background consistent with natural wool.
