Meaning "normal" or "plain" in Arabic, this stunning Beni Ourain kilim may be a bit simple in design but it has a couple extraordinary features. First is its fantastic size! Coming in at approximately 7' wide by 11' long, it's the perfect wide size for a living room. Also another unique thing to note is his looped pile, which is characteristic of this tribe's kilim rugs.
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.
COLORS/MATERIALS: warm brown, cream. Hand knotted wool.
**PLEASE NOTE: this rug is NOT stark white, but more of a creamy background consistent with natural wool.
