The Beni Ourain rugs
At Casa W, we only have original Beni Ourain rugs handmade by women from the Beni Ourain association of Berber tribes, which originated in the Middle Atlas Mountains south of Marrakech. The blankets are used by the Berber tribe to cover themselves and lie on when they need to sleep. Each carpet is a work of art and unlike oriental carpets, they are not produced according to models, but only according to the women's own wishes and often symbolize the feelings the women have had when they weave. The diamond shape seen in many of the rugs protects against evil. The color tones are natural in their white, beige, brown and black colors.
Are all the Beni Ourain rugs vintage?
In the past, Beni Ourain rugs were made exclusively for personal use. Now the Beni Ourain carpets are in such high demand all over the world that some of the tribes produce more carpets than they themselves need and sell them to local carpet dealers in e.g. Marrakech, where Casa W buys our rugs.
However, we have also been lucky to get our hands on some of the few vintage carpets available on the market.
