Beni Ourain 7.2x15feet / 220x455cm

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, extra-soft sheep wool (wool 100%).

 

- Natural wool color (so, definitely more beige than white) with black, brownish and orange lines and busy designs like crosses and diamonds. Orange color is made from henna.

- Wool 100%. Extremely tight weaving

- Approximate dimensions : 7.2x15feet (+6inches tassels) / 220x455cm (+15cm tassels)
Due to the handmade weaving, the rug is a slightly larger on some parts (around 4inches / 10cm).

 

This item is vintage, meaning that it's been made first for private use, not directly for the market. It may come with signs of light wear. That said, it's in great condition, clean, bright and extra-soft wool! Please take time to check all detailed pictures.

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!
