It's not very often you come across a solid Beni Ourain rug in the taupe/gray/brown tones! I picked it because of its neutral color, subtle yet timeless look, and the size. Oh and also, it's sooooo soft. I love that it was woven with all natural brown wool pile - so it's un-dyed! It would be perfect in a seating area, next to the bed, or in an Entry.
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 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: Natural brown/gray wool pile with white tassels. Hand woven wool with cotton woven into base.
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - approximately 20-30 years old
SIZE: 52 x 67" (not including the tassels)
PILE: high pile
