This steel blue Beni Ourain rug was made for us upon request by a lovely weaver community in the Ifraine Province.
The modern design, reminiscent of the angry sea, is based on thousands of years of artistic tradition. Its irregular composition consists of smaller and larger lozenge motifs evolving into a net of lozenges on one side of the rug and blending into blue colour transitions on the other side. The broken lines here and there recall a chalk drawing by a child.
The transitional wool colours on the grey-blue scale are achieved with hand-dying. The colours have a slightly ‘washed’ feel which only enhances the quirkiness of the rug. The thick wool surface of the rug is evenly shaved, and it has fringes on both ends.
** All our rugs are carefully hand-knotted. Each piece is completely unique, bearing the individual self-expression of the weaver woman as well as the weaving traditions of the tribes of the Atlas Mountains. We handpick each and every piece of our collection. Please note that Berber rugs are handcrafted products so you may spot minor imperfections. We think this only adds to their character and charm.
