The Beni Ourain people lived in the Atlas Mountains (Morocco) from the ninth century AD onwards, and the name refers to 17 Berber tribes who primarily live there.
Traditionally, Beni Ourain rugs were made by women meticulously weaving tapestries from wool or recycled textiles at home, with little changing from generation to generation a lot of the techniques remain the same to this day,
The thick pile, woven, cream-colored rugs are traditionally made from the wool of the breed of Beni Ourain sheep and have thin black lines criss-crossing to form a diamond shape. That symbol is actually an ‘X’ and is known to symbolise peace and harmony.
