Beni Ourain 6.6x10.5feet / 200x320cm

A classic! Beni Ourain or Beni Ouarain rugs are made by women in the Middle Atlas, Morocco. This one is a beautiful real vintage Marmoucha, thick and incredibly soft sheep wool (wool 100%).

Look at the busy designs on the top of the rug disappearing gradually to the bottom fringe, with color fading a bit also. You won't see another one like this!

Aged more than 15 years old but in excellent condition! Choosing this rug, you buy more than the average Beni Ourain rug!

 

- Natural wool color I would call a beige, with dark lines and symbols

- Wool 100%

- Approximate dimensions : 6.6x10.5feet (+4inches tassels) / 200x320cm (+10cm tassels)

 

This item is vintage, meaning that it's been made first for private use, not directly for the market. It will come with signs of light wear: top fringe is torn as you can see on the closest shots. Can be easily fixed on demand. I personally love it like this as I think it gives it more character. That said it's in great condition, clean, bright and soft wool! 

Pictures were taken in my bright and all white studio in Marrakech, using outside light coming from large windows aside (no use of extra artificial light). Colors are accurate. Please take time to check all detailed pictures.
