Vintage Beni Ourain Rug No. M0037Regular price
Circa 2008. This vintage Beni Ourain rug features a soft salmon and pale peach background, with a faded olive and brown lozenge pattern. Sourced from the region of Tahla in Morocco, the origin of the renowned Beni Ourain confederation of tribes.
Vintage Moroccan rugs are collectable canvases, originally made by hand by Amazigh women over the course of months, sometimes years. Originally woven to protect families from the harsh mountain winters and passed down through generations. Each piece is unique with colours and patterns that are emblematic of the tribe that it is from, and symbolises the identity of the woman who made it.
Each of our rugs has a story that started long before its arrival to Moussem and may show imperfections, crooked lines and asymmetrical compositions that are both geometric and soulful. Some older rugs may show signs of wear, repairs or fading, these imperfections are signs of authenticity and character, not flaws.
