This Beni Ourain rug was hand-picked for The Nursery in Marrakech, Morocco.
Each rug is hand-knotted and the wool is undyed, so colour is fixed. What does this mean? It means that the colours you see in the rugs are actually the colours of the sheep’s fleece. So, the majority of the rugs are cream with only details in dark wool because there is very little dark wool on the sheep, really just on the head of the breeds found in Morocco.
This Beni Ourain rug measures 117cm x 166cm.

About Beni Ourain Rugs
Beni Ourain rugs are hand woven by the Berber tribes from the Middle Atlas Mountains of Morocco using traditional techniques in the highest quality un-dyed wool.
Beni Ourain rugs typically feature simple, geometric patterns and designs in black/ brown wool on white/ cream background. More than just a rug, Beni Ourain rugs have a long shaggy pile, which is traditionally used to create a warm floor covering or even to sleep on – that’s why they are so soft!
Kate recently went on an adventure/buying trip to Morocco with Julia Green, stylist extraordinaire (https://greenhouseinteriors.com.au/) and Pip Brett, retail queen of Orange (https://www.jumbledonline.com/)!
Armed with our trusty guide/negotiator/translator Moh, we hit the Medina to shop for our shops so that we could bring back ‘the goods’. Find everything we brought back in the Moroccan Edit and read more about Morocco in our blog.
