The Beni Ouarain are a group of 17 Berber tribes in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. The Beni Ourain rug was originally used as a warm blanket or cape, protecting the cold winters of the Atlas Mountains. The Moroccan rugs are characterized by a simple abstract geometric motif, hand knotted in pure wool.
The real vintage Beni Ourain rugs you will never find wider than 220 cm / 7". So wider ones are likely new made and not vintage. The size between 200 cm and 220 cm is very hard to find.
We think the vintage ones have real character and spirit. It is an expression of the daily life experiences of the persons who made it.
All the rugs we sell are selected ourselves in Morocco. In order to offer you the most beautiful vintage rugs in excellent quality.
