The revival of Moroccan rugs and Beni Ourain rugs in Australia can somewhat be attributed to Sydney based kulchi. The word kulchi means "lots of things" in arabic and thats what you will find at their store in sydney. While not exclusively a rug store, kulchi do source some beautiful vintage Moroccan rugs.
The primitive geometric designs of Beni Ourain rugs lends themselves for use in contemporary interiors. The long thick pile of these handmade rugs provides for a warm texture and makes them ideal for hard floors favoured by architects and interior designers in Sydney and Melbourne homes.
The handmade long wool berber rug has long been favoured as a comfortable floor covering by tribes of the High Atlas Mountains. The wool in this region has a particularly high lanolin content making it ideal for high traffic areas and easy to maintain. To clean a Beni Ourain rug, simply use a damp cloth and soapy water. You can also use wool wash from the supermarket. Your local rug wash can also be contacted for cleaning the whole rug.
