Handmade Moroccan Wool Rug with Geometric Tribal Design N12078 13'3" × 18'7" $23,000
Although presently made, this new Moroccan rug embodies the greatest features of centuries-old Oriental weaving craft. It is modeled on Beni Ourains – iconic shaggy beauties originally woven by nomadic tribes wandering the area of Rif mountains near Taza, distinguished by a very characteristic design.
The modern rug before your eyes is a variation on the classic canon of Beni Ourains. Its off-white field bears a slightly irregular pattern of Bukagi – the fetter motif— rendered in dark brown. Fetter is a sort of shackles placed on the front legs of horses to keep them from running away. The motif symbolizes the continuity of family unity, devotion of lovers and hope that they would always stay together. It is worth mentioning that the imperfections of the design are intentional – they are connected to tribal beliefs that nothing in the earthly life can be perfect and aim at expressing humility towards the force majeure.
This modern Moroccan rug was made in complete accordance with traditional craft. Its cushy pile was carefully hand-knotted of top-notch wool by a skilled artisan. Due to such execution, the rug is durable, resilient and unique. Under the condition of proper maintenance, it will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear, bringing its warmth and a pinch of Oriental magic into any home.
