Beni Ouarain 2.53 x 1.66
The beautiful textiles of the Beni Ourain rugs, for instance, reflected the level of importance of wool in every aspect of life of the Berber tribes. The rugs were woven by women who mostly created the rugs based on the important stages of a person’s life such as a wedding (Handira and wedding capes), warm blankets for winter months and flat floor coverings for their wooden houses.
The number of vibrant weaving traditions for the rugs was just as many as the Moroccan tribes. While some used natural dyes and dyed with henna, other tribes used brown, bold red, tangerine, magenta, rose and mauve dyes were used.
Because of the weaving techniques employed, bold geometric designs and strong bands of color mostly combined with cream or white as a demarcation for the motifs. The energetic design of a ivory Moroccan rug, for instance, is perfect with a muted interior palette.
