About the Rugs

Our Authenticity Guarantee

Beautiful rugs are an integral part of a room's design, and a popular choice for modern interior design is a Moroccan Berber rug or a Beni Ourain rug. These rugs fit well with abstract and geometric themes found in contemporary design. Rather than being one single tribe, the Beni Ourain is a group of 17 different Berber tribes who work together to produce handwoven rugs. The Berber people have been weaving these rugs for over 1,500 years.

Originally, these rugs were not produced to provide a cover for floors. Instead, the Berber tribes wove them to serve as bedspreads, blankets and even burial shrouds. With their loose weave and thick pile, berber rugs provided warmth and protection against the cold weather. They continue to be used in this way today, but can also be found serving as actual rugs or decorative wall art.

Authentic Berber Rugs

Each Moroccan city traditionally has its own distinct style of rug. Most of the rugs are asymmetrical with a thick, deep pile and use abstract designs created via geometric shapes.

Some of them may include traditional symbols designed to tell a story or bring good luck to protect the owner against evil. Some cities produce rugs that pair bold colors such as red, blue and green against a natural background, but Beni Ourain rugs are known for having a cream or off-white background and geometric designs created with black or brown lines. No matter what design is chosen, all authentic Moroccan rugs are very durable and can last for more than a lifetime.

The benefits of a genuine Moroccan Berber rug are unmatched. Our authentic rugs are made of excellent quality wool that will last for decades with the proper care. Our authentic rugs can also be cherished as a unique piece of art which will only gain in value.

The look and feel of our plush Beni Ourain rugs will be appreciated by both homeowners and guests, and will bring the exotic ambiance of Morocco direct into your home.

We have excellent relationships with members of the Beni Ourain tribe, and visit Morocco several times a year in order to continue providing only the highest quality rugs. We have established favorable trading conditions for the tribe to ensure maximum sustainability. We guarantee each one of our Beni Ourain rugs to be authentic, excellent quality rugs.
