Minimalist Beni Ourain Shag Rug

Minimalist Beni Ourain Shag Rug

185.00

100% sheep wool

58 x 32 inches

The yarn in this shaggy rug is especially soft and feels great in direct contact with skin. Its thin lines of decoration are a dark grey wool for stark contrast that is softened by the interaction with the fuzzy white. 

This stylish high-pile rug is a classic specimen of the Beni Ourain tribe's taste in textiles - fluffy black and white diamonds. 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 weaver has added a few rows of weft between the pile knots to allow for more texture and air to breathe. 

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