Our Beni Ourain range provides a more neutral, subtle style to your interior space if a contemporary, minimalist look is more appealing. Beni Ourain rugs are the most renowned Moroccan Berber rugs, often featuring the typical monochrome, diamond pattern. Each handwoven rug, created by one of the 17 Moroccan Berber tribes high in the Atlas Mountains, is made from 100% wool, guaranteeing a plush, luxurious pile.
Traditional Beni Ourain tribal patterns can be traced back hundreds of years ago, some as far back as the Palaeolithic era, yet the geometric, abstract designs have the ability to lend themselves to contemporary households, lying upon a stone or rustic wooden flooring as originally intended.
Berber Tribes were typically nomadic and primarily worked as shepherds who raised their livestock in the Atlas Mountains, with fresh, natural grass and unpolluted air, allowing the sheep to produce extremely fine wool, adding to the high quality seen throughout the Beni Ourain range.
Whilst some of the Berber Tribes traditionally use monochrome colouring with their rugs, others utilizing natural dyes to feature more colourful designs, allowing Beni Ourain designs to suit an array of tastes and interior spaces.
