Vintage Moroccan Berber Rug

About

This authentic ivory white Beni Ouarain carpet is hand-knotted with a soft blend of subtle browns and natural wool colors. The Beni Ouarain tribe produces some of the finest quality rugs in all of Morocco. These rugs show an archaic symbolism that dates back to the earliest forms of art and writing. Known for their simplistic lozenge patterns, these motifs are a link to some of the oldest discovered human artifacts, including the ancient Venus figurines of Europe. 100% wool / hand-knotted Berber carpets are an essential element in homes worldwide thanks to their popularity with modernist architects and designers. From the 1930s-1960s, Alvar and Aino Aalto, Le Corbusier and Arne Jacobsen, among others, styled their interiors using the abstract rug motifs of nomadic Berber tribes. These handmade woolen carpets offer an extraordinary combination of minimalism and inventive patterns, which continues to allure people’s imagination and inspire contemporary interiors.
