Beni Ourain 5.7x10.7feet / 175x325cm

A classic! Beni Ourain or Beni Ouarain rugs are made by women in the Middle Atlas, Morocco. 

 

- Beige background with black diamonds pattern and plenty of black x pink berber designs (crosses and stars and abstract floral designs). Love how those little squares in the middle part of the rug seem to twinkle!

- Wool 100%, low pile, almost flatweave, quite thin.

- Approximate dimensions: 5.7x10.7feet (+8inches tassels) / 175x325cm (+20cm tassels)

 

Please note that this rug has been made first for private use, not directly for the market. It will come with signs of wear. That said it shows no stains or obvious repairs and is in lovely vintage condition, a little rustic as you can see on the pictures attached.

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, so you can see the beautiful work, textures and designs on this rug!
