Side with pattern and texture in a modern space for a look that commits to comfort and casual elegance in this vintage Beni Ourain Moroccan rug. With its plush pile wool and ancient Moroccan talisman symbolism, this Beni Ouarain rug has the ability to connect the feel of nomadic tribe history with today’s modern interiors. Luxurious wool, Mid-Century style and a tribal pattern shine in this exotic Berber Moroccan rug. A creamy vanilla beige field with charcoal colored lines form an overall diamond pattern. The diamond pattern is believed to protect the human spirit from negative energy and shield the human body from the elements while the vertical borders are seen as protection from the evil eye. While the patterns may seem whimsical and random – they are very significant to the rug weaver’s life. The Berber women incorporate design elements from their personal experience into the rugs designs. The symbols are usually references to events and aspects of their daily life such as beliefs, birth, fertility, nature, femininity, life and spirituality. Some believed that the rugs could even ward off evil spirits so naturally, they incorporated designs such as diamonds and lucky charms to ward off the evil spirits and bring luck, prosperity and protection. From cabin homes and ski chalets to mountain houses and Alpine lodges, vintage Moroccan rugs are making their way into our hearts and homes. Abrash. Hand-knotted wool. Made in Morocco.
