Description

The large, archaic looking, white-ground rug known as the Beni Ourain is the creation of Morocco’s mountain nomads. The thick, but loosely structured rugs were not used as a floor covers, but rather as beds and bedding. Efficient protection against the winter cold in snowy highland areas, the classic Beni Ourain features a network of black lines on a cream ground. The oldest rugs of the Beni Ourain have extremely rich designs.
