Beni Ourain Shag Rug

Beni Ourain Shag Rug


100% sheep wool

58 x 31 inches

This stylish high-pile rug is a classic specimen of the Beni Ourain tribe's taste in textiles - fluffy black and white diamonds - but while the designs look black from a distance, the wool is actually a very dark brown on closer inspection. This weaver has added a few rows of weft between the pile knots to allow for more texture and air to breathe. 

This minimalist look is a favorite of modern designers and we have been surprised to recognize many of these rugs in the home decor photos of current magazines. 

  • This object comes from an association in Fez, Morocco that benefits widowed and divorced women and promotes traditional weaving arts.
