An outstanding vintage Beni Ouarain rug from the 1960s. This superb large rug has a deep pile in a warm ivory shade of natural undyed wool and a regular lozenge pattern which itself is intricately formed using small rectangular patterns to make each lozenge. Encasing the rug on both sides is a beautiful protective edging in dark shades of undyed wool, which sets this apart as a quality rug. This rug feels very soft and cosy underfoot, is very heavy and looks absolutely stunning!
Beni Ouarain rugs easily make the leap from their tribal roots to looking fabulous in contemporary homes due to their comparatively simple colour and design. This one is no exception. It would look amazing in any large space in your home.
Wow, this gorgeous 'Beni' makes my heart beat faster! It is 29 kg of pure wool. So soft, stunningly beautiful, and just shouts out for bare feet to melt into it. Lush!
3.60 m x 2.10 m / 11' 10" x 6' 10".
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.
