BENI OUARAIN COLLECTION RUGS
Our Beni Ouarain collection is made exclusively of handmade carpets.
Beni Ouarain carpets are generally large and certainly the best known Moroccan carpets.
Rugs from Berber tribes of the Middle Atlas, hand-woven by the women of Beni Ouarain and its surroundings.
Typical Berber rugs
Carpets to protect the Berber tribes from the cold of the Atlas Mountains.
