Beni Ourain 6.5x11.8feet / 200x360cm

A classic! Beni Ourain or Beni Ouarain rugs are made by women in the Middle Atlas, Morocco. This one is a beautiful real vintage one, flat weave wool (wool 100%).

A real gem! You won't see another one like this!

 

- Natural wool color (so, definitely more beige than white) with black lines and light purple, peach symbols + 8 small turquoise spots (!)

- Wool 100% (except for cotton tassels)

- Approximate dimensions : 6.5x11.8feet (+2inches tassels on each ending) / 200x360cm (+5cm tassels on each ending)

 

This item is vintage, meaning that it's been made first for private use, not directly for the market. Aged about 50 years old, it's been fixed on several parts but will come with signs of wear, like a few spots that are severely worn in pile and obvious fixes on the flat weave part on each ending.

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!
