A stunning soft woollen rug made by the Beni Ouarain tribe circa 1980. It comprises a natural wool field with a vertical central pattern of connecting lozenge shapes and a border of zigzag motifs in dark brown wool. A beautiful rug, this design being very popular in both traditional and contemporary homes.
2.70 m x 1.75 m / 8' 10" x 5' 9".
Boasting a beautiful ivory background colour and adorned with geometrical diamond patterns in black or brown, the classic 'Beni' is made from undyed soft natural wool with a medium to thick pile. It is warm, sumptuous and durable and each one is the result of up to a year's work by a Berber woman from the mountainous north-eastern region of Morocco. Beni Ouarains have largely maintained their original patterns and colour, standing out from other carpet types by virtue of this. They are considered to be the most prestigious carpets produced in Morocco and have become very popular in Europe in recent years due to their simplicity and adaptability to interiors of modern or traditional design.
