The Story
Moroccan Beni Ourain carpets are woven from natural dyed wool and traditionally decorated with geometric designs. Made by nomadic tribes people, these rugs are elegantly simple in design, representing the sparse surrounds of the Moroccan landscape. The long shaggy pile of natural dyed wool, feels incredible under bare foot.

Beni Ourain rugs are woven from the natural dyed sheep wool that covers the sheep's body, the pattern is woven from the wool on the sheep's head, it looks black, but it is not, it is either dark brown, light brown, dark gray, or light gray. Sheep with jet black wool on their heads are rare.

Subtle, calming influence but with plenty of character.

This rug will easily suit any surrounding and the most discerning of tastes
