Vintage Beni Ourain rug

 

This vintage hand woven Beni Ourain rug is from Morocco.  It’s a densely knotted piece and is known as a Beni Ourain rug for its abstract patterns and symbols, its colour palette  and because it was woven by the Beni Ourain people in the Atlas mountains in Morocco.   The Beni Ourain are a group of semi-nomadic people who raise sheep and goats and it is the fine quality of their sheep’s wool that is used for the rugs.  The rugs were hand woven by women using techniques handed down from generation to generation and each piece is unique.

 

This piece features abstract lines and patterns in a rich chocolate brown with touches of charcoal black, pale pink and green in the design.  Natural dyes would have been used to create the colours in this rug.  This is a real statement piece which will work well in a contemporary setting.

 

Whilst every effort is made to ensure that this vintage rug is in great condition it may have minor defects due to natural wear and tear.

Size: 150cm x 94cm
