“Morocco is a country known for its beautiful craftsmanship, and the Beni Ouarain is the spearhead of it.
The name of this carpet came from the Berber tribes living in the middle Atlas Maintains. Traditionally, and like all the other carpets in Morocco the women of the village make these carpets of the best quality of wool.
Beni Ouarin Carpets are indeed used both as a mattress and as blankets, in some occasion days, they are used as the interior and the exterior decoration of the house.
The usual design of Beni Ouarain carpet consists of two colors Black & White and sometimes a little touch of Brown as the women depend 100% on the natural colors of wool and that what makes these carpets very thick.
In term of patterns, the diamond is the most common pattern, but nowadays the carpet is adopting more minimalist pattern that still have a significance in the Berber culture.
