Moroccan Beni Ouarain Rugs

Crafted by women in the interior plains and mountains on fixed-heddle looms, Moroccan rugs can vary greatly depending on the tribes that weave them. Nonetheless, they all use severely geometric Moroccan decoration, sometimes in muted tones, sometimes almost monochrome, and sometimes richly colorful tones and asymmetrical compositions without borders. The raw material of the Moroccan rugs is black or white sheep’s wool, used as is or dyed with plants or minerals found in the areas where the carpets are woven. In the upper regions, ochers are often used while in the Plains of Marrakesh, madder provides brilliant reds. Moroccan rugs provide designers with timeless, unique, and functional works of art for the modern-day home. Each rug is a primitive abstraction that is completely original to the weaver of the rug. Recognizing the beauty of these rugs in the modern environment were such notable designers and architects as Charles and Ray Eames, Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright

The vintage Moroccan tribal rugs are not only hard to find, but are very highly priced. Fortunately there’s been a recent trend towards these classic Beni Ourain tribal rugs (though originally they were used as blankets to stay warm). These rugs are lush and hand-woven with natural wool, typically sporting black diamond shapes on an off white/ivory backdrop. They’re often asymmetrical, broken and the lines rarely ever resembling anything straight.
