Say hello to the largest vintage Beni I've ever had! At around 7x13', this guy would be great in a large living space or bedroom!
Named after the Moroccan boys' name meaning "handsome", that's exactly the adjective I would use to describe him. He has a warm natural cream base (almost biege) with faded black detailing.
Beni Ourains are such beautiful and timeless pieces. Due to their hand-knotted nature, the back (as shown in the pictures) is often a work of art as well.
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.
COLORS/MATERIALS: Natural warm creamy wool with black detailing.Hand knotted wool.
**Please note: Beni Ourains are NOT white, but have a cream colored natural wool base. :)
ESTIMATED AGE:Vintage - approx. 20-30 years
**Please note: there is a hole that you can see on the back of the rug but is unnoticeable from the front.

PLEASE NOTE:Because this is a handmade item, there may be slight imperfections in weaving, pattern, or shape. Please note all vintage items have endured a previous life and so may have slight wear and repairs.
