Beni Ourain Moroccan Rugs
Handcrafted by women artisans from the Middle Atlas Mountain region of Morocco, Beni Ourain rugs were traditionally used as bedding to keep warm in the cold winter months. They are handwoven from undyed, natural wool and feature a characteristic ivory or cream field with a simple geometric diamond pattern line design in henna-like brown or black, which is woven from undyed wool from black sheep. The asymmetry and subtle variations in line thickness make each Beni Ourain rug one-of-a-kind. Their neutral tones and elegant minimalist design made them a favorite of mid-century modernist designers such as Alvar Aalto, Charles & Ray Eames, Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier. Inherently organic and eco-friendly, they continue to be popular today.
