Large Beni Ourain Moroccan Rug 213cm x 157cm Morocco Carpet Atlas ref. 22
213cm x 157cm approx. This is a one off Hand-woven rug. Will lie perfectly in a cottage or contemporary home. Sourced from a small village in the high Atlas. If you prefer mass produced perfection please look away now. Beni Ourain rugs are hand-woven by artisans in the mountains of Morocco. The techniques and intricate designs are passed on from generation to generation. The wool used to create these art pieces come from sheep that reside at high elevations, which yields an especially thick warm fibre in rich cream to beige tones. Traditionally used as bedding to keep warm in the cold winter months, they are handmade, double-knott, un-dyed 100% natural wool carpets – characteristically heavy white pile with geometric diamond designs each one unique. Very authentic Beni Ourain rug is unique in its own design and colour. Unlike mass produced alternatives, each rug is truly distinct and durable over time. The Berbers carefully preserve their heritage of technique and knowledge passing down messages in wool from one generation to another. While preserving history, the elemental nature of Berber weaving is an execution of pure instinct. Weaving is not only an inherent rite of passage, but also an act of expression. The women that create these works have a story to tell. While some rugs document a personal experience, other weavings carry a more ancestral message passed down over time. Many of the artists weave their tales organically, while others intentionally channel inherited knowledge into the rug. The life rituals of the Berber women, including fertility, birth, and the protective role of men, are narrated in an abstract form. It is pure coincidence that the Berber carpets, with their simplistic form and geometric purity, appear modern to the Western eye. All of our Beni Ourain Rugs are in excellent condition and ready to use in your home. If there is any aspect you are unsure of or have any other queries please do not hesitate to get in touch.
