The Story Behind the Weave:This traditional style is referred to as Beni Ourain and it will be handwoven by neighbors Rokia, pictured, and Khatima. “Beni Ourain” is a regional name that includes 17 Amazigh 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. This piece will be woven with 100% "live" wool, which allows for healthier and stronger wool. While the pictured design is made with with undyed wool we'd be happy to adjust to any color combination you'd prefer.Each rug is made entirely by hand so there will always be small variations in pattern, color and exact size (up to 10 cm variation) due to the organic nature of the materials but we strive to accurately capture the detail and color so you know what you’re getting.
