FROM THE ATLAS TRIBE TO YOUR HOME
We are a Berber family in the Atlas mountains, we know that Berber rugs speak to us about the lives in the mountains and emotions of their weavers It is the Berber Moroccan women, with their expert fingers , who patiently craft each rug for their families-be it a precious marriage offering or a large bed blanket (Batania) to keep a whole family warm in the winter time We select our Berber rugs with special eye and look into the life behind that piece, privileging originality over commercial viability. With enormous respect for the hard work that Berber families bring to the creation of a single rug or blanket (hanbal), we not only guarantee the authenticity of what we offer but will also tell you the story of each piece.
Beni Ourain is a tribe in the atlas which provides a special design of Berber rug To browse our current collection of Moroccan Berber Beni Ourain rugs.
Originally woven by the Beni Ourain tribe for use as bedding, our collection of one-of-a-kind pile rug is hand-woven from the long curly wool of an ancient breed of Berber sheep. From the eighth to century time, this nomadic tribe lived in the remote region in the Middle Atlas Mountains of North Africa secluded from the influence of Berber Amazigh and Arab aesthetics. As a result of the centuries of Tifinagh cultural, the Beni Ourain tribe rugs represent a pure strain of abstract magical utilitarian art that was created to protect the human spirit from negative energy and to protect the human body from the elements. In the early 20th century, with the conscious inception of Western abstract art, Berber Beni Ourain Rugs began to be appreciated and incorporated into interiors by visionary designers The subdued yet bold presence of a Beni Ouarain tribal carpet blends beautifully with the clean lines of modern furniture and architecture in the 21st century, Beni Ourain rugs and Azilal rugs continue to be collected and appreciated by architects and interior designers because is natural warmth durability and sparse elegant black and white designs pattern, each unique hand-woven tribal art rugs in our collection brings true modernist style to an interior space.
