Some of these techniques are hundreds of years old, and when combined with the skills developed by each weaver, they create a truly spectacular product. This lovely, handcrafted Moroccan Berber rug has a luxurious feel and interesting designs that make it pleasing to the touch as well as to the eye.

This high-quality Moroccan Beni Ourain rug has a pile that was created naturally through time-tested methods. The authentic sheep wool used to fashion the rugs are put through a distinct process that ultimately results in the unique appearance. The dying and weaving methods utilized when such rugs are crafted are native to Moroccan Berber tribes. The weaver typically starts by washing the rug with water from the Atlas Springs. The rug is then placed in direct sunlight where it is dried. This is what gives Berber rugs their signature ivory colour. As you can see, the geometric pattern on the rug is an abstract design to enhance the look of any room.
It is simple to keep Berber rugs looking great, and they are renowned for their longevity. This is because the natural lanolin in the wool with which they are created makes the rug somewhat stain-resistant without the need for complex maintenance. Any Beni Ourain rug you invest in is sure to remain soft and vibrant for many years. They are completely organic as well, since the weaving process does not involve the use of any harsh chemicals.
