The Story Behind the Weave:This rug comes from Lakbira who lives in a village near Khenifra which is located in the north of Morocco surrounded by the Atlas Mountains. The rug style is known as Beni Ourain. The name represents a region that includes 17 Amazigh (Berber) tribes, all living among the Atlas Mountains. This is the most commonly known style of Moroccan rugs, while they usually share geometric design elements, each tribe has their own signature style. Lakbira modernized this piece by incorporating recessed Flatweave lines in a trellis design which has created a mesmerizing dimension to the rug.This piece was woven with 100% "live" undyed wool, which allows for healthier and stronger wool.
