THIS RUG'S STORY:
Named after the Moroccan boys' name meaning "friend" or companion", this gorgeous vintage Beni Ourain is a very welcoming and stunning piece. He has a warm creamy natural wool base with an amazing pattern made up of brown, faded red/rosy pink, and peach.
Beni Ourain rugs are some of my favorite rugs. The details in the weaving with trial patterns really set these pretty rugs apart. Due to their handknotted nature, the back is often very beautiful as well. Make sure to check out all the pictures.
This rug has a lower pile that would be perfect in a higher traffic area like a dining room or living space. Be sure to use a rug pad though! (See the FAQ's for a couple of my favorites)
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 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.
