BENI OURAIN BERBER TRIBAL RUGS
Berber rugs are made in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco traditionally by the Beni Ourain tribes. In the past these rugs were woven as sleeping mats, that is why they are distinctly long and narrow in size as well as thick and quite heavy. The sheep found in this area produce wool that is distinctive to the Berber rug. The whole rug is 100% thick and has a rough weave making it a luxurious thick pile and comfortable rug.
We venture out into the Atlas Mountains and work closely with many of the weavers, who along with their own beautiful designs are happy to weave designs that we have created and sizes that are more suitable for a home in the UK. It’s a long procedure to get the right designs, colours but worth it when we see the end result. When the rugs arrive in our warehouse in London we wash and finish them to a high standard bringing a bit of magic from a Berber village to your homes.
