The most popular Moroccan rugs are the designs from the Beni Ourain tribes, there are 17 Berber tribes from the Atlas Mountains. Their rugs have distinctive designs, which range from ordered geometric shapes and expressive patterns. They almost always are in a neutral palette (usually they have an ivory background with brown or black geometric lines), and they have a shaggy pile. These rugs were never intended to be decorative objects, the rugs were originally woven for practical purposes: It is cold in the mountains, so they were used for blankets, shawls and bed covers.
Traditional Beni Ourain tribal designs were woven from memory, not patterns, so they have an appealing “quirkiness.” and it’s their quirkiness that makes these rugs appealing to interior designers. It’s the idiosyncratic patterns that gives more traditional rooms a much-needed shot of modernity.
