Beni Ouarain rugs traditional use :

Winter is rough in the Moroccan Atlas Mountains where the lowest temperatures in Africa are observed. To protect themselves from the cold, Beni Ourain tribes, who lived in traditional tents, had no alternative other than to produce thick wool rugs to insulate themselves from an hostile environment.

The Beni rugs were not intended to have a decorative purpose, they were traditionally used as bedding and blankets to keep them warm with their thick pile.

Moroccan Beni Ourain rugs wool

Few decades ago, the Beni Ourain were confined in Berber tents of the Atlas Mountains, this confinement is definitely broken in the early twentieth century under the French protectorate. Nowadays, they are used all over the world in refined interior decoration, as a very chic and fashion floor covering.

Beni Ourain carpets wool :

Beni rugs are made of pure sheep’s wool of high quality featuring shining pile of golden and ivory highlights ; one of this best organic wool is produced out of a unique rustic Moroccan berber sheep breed around the ancient race called ‘Marmoucha’.

The Beni Ourain berber tribes excel in selecting softer and silkier wool during a harvesting that could last several years before gathering enough wool to make some rugs.

Patterns and colors of Beni Ourains

Patterns and colors of Beni Ourains :

Because of their landlocked and mountainous location in the northern Middle Atlas, the Moroccan berber tribes of Beni Ourain have never been influenced by the Arab-eastern designs .Their rugs have kept their originality, reflecting archaic appearance of minimalist designs, composed of black and brown asymmetric patterns of diamonds, lines and triangles, in an off-white, cream background.

Beni Ourain measures :

Because the Beni Ourain tents have a rectangular form, the carpet should normally cover the complete interior space of the tent. Nowadays, moroccan berber houses have long narrow rooms so the rugs tend to be long and not very wide. As a result, these rugs are approximately 4 meters long by 2 meters width.

The weight ranges from 40 to 65lb. and the height of the wool spread from 25 mm to 50 mm. Logically, a rug of more than 2.20 meters width is not an antique Beni Ourain rug. Nowadays Beni Ourain berber rugs are becoming increasingly popular in contemporary homes as they can be weaved in any size.

They got trendy by Henri Matisse, who called them “The huge whites”

Beni Ourain in interior decoration styles :

“I don't see them as trendy; I see them as timeless” and “this quirkiness is exactly what makes these rugs appealing to interior designers. They give a room, particularly a cold, modern room, warmth and patina as well as a dose of ethnicity,” said Timothy Whealon of Timothy Whealon Interiors in New York about the Beni Ourain rugs.

The charm, luxury and simplicity of these Berber rugs make them the most famous and appreciated Moroccan rugs and a worldwide interior design reference. These tribal berber rugs seem to combine a modernist taste for minimalist linearity with the graphic symbolism of primitive art. The tribal graphics pair well with contemporary and traditional space designs.

The Beni Ourain off-white carpet can be used in many decorating styles, not overloaded with colours and patterns: They put more value in the furniture, whether antique wooden furniture, leather lounges or design furniture.

History and Way of life of Beni ourain berber tribes :

The nomadic Beni Ourain berber tribes are known worldwide for the quality of their white rugs decorated with stripes or geometric shapes such as diamonds

Beni Ourain is the name of a Berber confederation of 17 berber tribes (Ahl Taida, Beni Abd el Hamid, Beni Jelidassen, Ait Ighezrane, Beni Zeggoute, Tahala, Beni Bou Zart, Zerarda et Ahl Telt..etc.) . They are all indigenous to the Northeaster mountains of the Middle Atlas in Morocco, in the south of the Moroccan Rif. Their origin in Morocco dates back to the ninth century with the arrival of Berber tribes coming possibly from the south of Tunisia or northern of Mauritania.

The Beni Ourain tribes are spending the summer with their herds on the heights of the range, over 2000 meters and come back down in the grassy plains with the first snowfall. So herds of goats and sheeps enjoy a rich and abundant food throughout the year providing a high quality wool to produce the most appealing berber rugs of the world.
