Beni Ouarain (Azrou Medium)

Black Sheep White Sheep

This is the second of our delightful trio of luxuriously soft genuine hand-made Beni Ouarain rugs, sourced in the Ifrane Province, south of Fes, in the Fes-Meknes region of Morocco.

This rug is the medium sized one of the three, and features a luscious deep pile made of the highest quality soft wool, with repeating zig-zag patterns in shades of opulent dark purple, plum and byzantium on a ghost white ground.

The pile, as is often found in the older, high quality pieces from the Middle Atlas Mountains, is constructed using the intricate Berber knot, which is only found in this region, and nowhere else in the world.

Origin: Middle Atlas Mountains, Morocco.

Material: 100% woollen pile and foundation.

Circa 1980's.

Size: 300 x 180 cm.
