This lovely vintage rug from the middle of the 20th century was inspired by modernistic trends and a very particular group of Moroccan carpets – Beni Ourains. Berber tribes living in the Rif Mountains near Taza have originated the tradition of Beni Ourain rugs – usually shaggy pile-weaves with a simplistic, seemingly carelessly made motifs and a two-color palette where the pattern is executed in brown or black shade on a beige or off-white background. Here we have a geometric design consisting of imperfect perpendicular brown lines on a white background. Some parts of this mid-century rug are very tribal and some clearly refer to the Modernist aesthetic thought, making it a perfect choice for both classic and contemporary interiors. This vintage beauty was thoroughly hand-knotted of the finest wool in accordance with old and refined weaving techniques by a skilled artisan. Due to such masterful making, the rug has survived until today with its soft, long pile unblemished, and is ready to serve its owners for many years. Undoubtedly, such carpet will not only be a perfect space definer and warmth bringer but also an intriguing accent with a pinch of the orient.
