Beni ourain Rug has a pale cream background with an ornate purple diamond pattern throughout. The detail seen in the knots on the brown of the rug show just how intricately it was made.
Marmoucha is the name of a small tribe that neighbors the more widely known Beni Ourain tribe. They are famous for their large-sized rugs that are densely woven, often high pile, and always with incredible attention to detail. Inhabiting the Middle Atlas Mountains, this Berber tribe uses rugs not only to warm the floors but as beds and heavy blankets to keep warm during the freezing winter.
