"A Beni Ourain rug is a forever investment in your home. They are plush and cozy and soft. If you have one, your feet love you. The Beni Ourain were woven to mimic the warmth of sheep pelts, but were created specifically as beds for nomadic sheep herders. When you look at the landscape of the Beni Ourain mountains, you find white craggy rock as far as the horizon. The Beni Ourain region is a wilderness of snow and stone with the occasion meandering stream. It is not surprising then to find that the rugs produced in this region are defined by a canvas abstracted diamond shapes, wayward zig-zagging lines, and primitive tribal symbolism. Beni Ourain rugs feature abstract linear patterns, dark natural undyed wool pattern on a field of white."
