The Story Behind the Weave:
This rug was handwoven by Malika in Ait Yadine, a village in the Middle Atlas mountains.

This traditional style, referred to as Beni Ourain, 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 was woven using 100% "live" wool, which allows for healthier and stronger wool. The rich yellow/orange color comes from a combination of henna and saffron.

The diamonds throughout the weave represent an eye—which symbolizes the protection against the evil eye in Berber culture.
