Mid Century Beni Ouarain Carpet

Mid Century Beni Ouarain Carpet


This gorgeous Beni Ouarain sleeping rug from around the 1950s has a delicate and soft lozenge network filled with fertility symbolism and male motifs in gentle faded lilac and sage green and rust red, with a worn, aged patina. Very old Beni Ouarain rugs like this one were woven in dark, almost brown, wool – not the ivory hues we see today. The wool is from the special breed of sheep from the region. Full of complex details, stories and history. It is likely that the tassels were added at a later stage. A beautiful low pile and some colour run from the red hues

Size: 2.33m plus two fringes by 2.16m

Reference: CA9070
