Oversized Moroccan Black and White Hand Knotted Textured Elements Rug N12071 16'0" × 26'2" $58,000
Although presently made, this oversized Moroccan rug embodies the greatest features of the centuries-old Oriental weaving craft while applying modern trends. It is modeled on Beni Ourains – iconic shaggy rugs originally woven by nomadic tribes wandering the area of the Rif mountains near Taza, distinguished by a very characteristic design. The most typical Beni Ourain rug has an ivory or whitish background and black or brown diamond grid pattern; a diamond in the Oriental rug symbolism is a protective motif guarding against the Evil Eye.
The field of the Moroccan carries a design of diamonds rendered in off-white against the black background. The exceptional texture of the pile was achieved thanks to careful hand-knotting of high-quality wool by a skilled artisan. Under the condition of proper maintenance, this oversized rug will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear.
