Vintage Beni Ourain CPT0216
This Vintage Beni Ouarain carpet is fabulously thick pile carpet so soft and sumptuous yet so chic with its neutrality of color and Berber motifs, Beni Ouarain vintage rugs are ideal for the chic and contemporary interiors of the twentieth century. The irony about these carpets is that although they might have legions of fans, if you had one, he really was all yours. Because no two Beni Ourain rugs were alike. Each was made by hand -- no mass production, no factories, no Ikea catalogue.
Moroccan rugs are made in the five regions of Morocco: the Middle Atlas, the High Atlas, Rabat, Eastern Morocco and the Atlantic plains. Retaining an authentic indigenous character and woven by Berber tribes living much as they did centuries ago, vintage Moroccan flat woven and knotted pile rugs are remarkably diverse in style, but all share the characteristics of bold color, thick shaggy pile, naïve yet charming motifs and lively patterns of geometric elements. Each tribe with its own distinct repertoire of designs and colors signify both the ceremonial and day to day life of the group. The vivacious oranges and sunny yellows in Morocco's High Atlas vintage rugs, the dramatic light blue and camel tones of the Rabat vintage carpets, or the neutrality of the ivory and charcoal ground Beni Ouarain vintage oriental rugs are ideal for the chic and contemporary interiors of the twentieth century.
