Beni Ourain rugs are made of 100% sheep wool and are 100% undyed and are therefore perfect for those who appreciate handcrafted and natural products.


The history of Beni Ourain rugs

Traditional Berber rugs were made by the Beni Ourain tribes. These tribes lived deep in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains. These Atlas Mountains are the home of special sheep that are a bit smaller than the sheep we know. The wool of these sheep is of excellent high quality which makes the Beni Ourain rugs so special. The rugs were originally needed to give warmth to the tribes that were always on the move with their tents.

Nowadays the Moroccan rugs Beni ourain are made by women in the Atlas mountains that loom these rugs. The rugs are known for their light beige color and their contrasting dark geometric patterns which tell the stories of the artisan’s life. Mostly these stories tell something about the daily lives of the women that loom these Beni Ourain rugs. Sometimes you’ll see aspects of birth, fertility, nature and femininity. Even personal beliefs are sometimes displayed on the Beni Ourain rugs.
