Beni Ourain Rugs are popular, modern. Beni's are modern looking, featuring minimalist designs of diamonds, triangles or naive figures in black on a white or cream background. Their abstract simplicity made them attractive to famous modernist architects in the 1920’s and 30’s, such as Le Corbusier and Alvar Aalto. They are considered to be the most prestigious rugs in Morocco, made from the very finest wool. Beni Ouarain carpets are made by the Berber tribes of the North-Eastern Middle Atlas Mountains in Morocco. Traditionally used as bedding to keep warm duing the cold winter months, they are handmade, double-knott, un-dyed 100% natural wool carpets - characteristically heavy white/cream pile with geometric diamond designs – each one unique.
