Beni Ourain rugs are likely the most comfortable rugs you’ll ever encounter. They are made from 100% sheep wool and are 100% undyed. These heirloom rugs are made for those who appreciate truly the natural world. They are the epitome of warmth and luxury.
All Beni Ourain rugs share a signature style with geometric designs. It’s a classic design for any room. You can expect to see dark brown lines and shapes on a white or cream background. You’ll also see symbols. They tell true stories from each weaver’s life.
When you’re looking for something plush for your feet or to keep you warm at night, these gorgeous rugs are ideal!
The symbolism of the Berber tradition is often referred to as the “Infinite Rapport”, meaning the pattern and the spirit of the work extends beyond its physical borders. Many examples of Berber carpets show shifts in pattern, reflecting a change in life events, a different weaver taking over the rug, or spontaneous creative expression. As many Berber women believe the rugs are imbued with a spirit, either from the imprint of the artist or from the living nature of the wool, they resist monitoring the progression of their work, often revealing the entire rug only after it has been completed. Once the deeply laborious weaving process is completed, the finished rugs are considered part of the family and are the prized possession of the home.
