The minimalist and abstract forms of the Beni Ourain rugs give them a beloved timeless profile. Handmade in Tahla, Morocco, by Amazigh women who engrave their identity in each piece they make via symbols passed down from one generation to the next.
Moroccan rugs are collectable canvases, originally made by hand by Amazigh women over the course of months, sometimes years.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.
