Moroccan Beni Ourain Rug


Although these Beni Ourain rugs do not have any great age to them they are still very much hand made by the Berbers in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco.

We have a few of the older rugs on our site, which are very rare and therefore more expensive.  We sourced these on a recent trip to Morocco.

Handmade by women using the wool from the underbelly of the mountain sheep. Historically these heavy pile rugs were used to keep everyone warm in the high, windswept villages of the central mountains.

These pile rugs would have been flipped over in the summer, pile side down to keep everything a bit cooler.

These rugs with their simple abstract patterns work brilliantly to blend contemporary interiors with vintage and industrial furniture.
