Beni Ourain rugs have a story to tell. The woolly Berber rugs have character and soul. This makes these Moroccan rugs so special and beautiful. They are a refelection of everyday life. The Beni Ouarain rugs are very popular and can be found in the international glossy magazines. The rugs are beautiful and warm. Handmade and unique, so only one copy available.
The Beni Ouarain are a group of 17 Berber tribes in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. The Beni Ourain rug was originally used as a warm blanket or cape, protecting the cold winters of the Atlas Mountains. The Moroccan rugs are characterized by a simple abstract geometric motif, hand knotted in pure wool.
The wool is cream colored. It can have some differences in tone depending the wool color of the sheep. Snow white vintage Beni Ourain rugs do not exist.
Authentic Beni Ourain Rug?... The differences
Vintage and new Beni Ourain rugs , are recognised by their classic double knot weave. An authentic Beni Ourain rug is always double knotted. Which makes the rugs extra thick and warm. Not every 'Beni Ourain rug' from Morocco is an authentic one.
Our newly made Beni Ourain rugs are really made in the Beni Ourain region. They are handmade according to old traditional methods with love and care. The wool used for our rugs is wool of high quality. The sheep live in the Atlas Mountains in higher areas. These sheep produce high-quality wool with a longer fiber lenght.
The quality of the wool can vary a lot depending on the breed of sheep, the location where the sheep live and the way the wool is processed. Many rugs are now sold under the name '' Beni Ouarain ''. Even machine made rugs. But also the Moroccan ones. Many of these rugs are not made in the Beni Ourain region but just a few kilometers outside the Marrakech region with lower and cheaper quality wool and made in a short time. Ofcourse the prices are therefore different. If you want true authentic beauty and quality it's good to know the difference. You can enjoy our Beni Ourain rugs for a very long time...
