It all starts with a flock of sheep in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains…
When we first laid eyes on these totally and utterly and absolutely beautiful woven rugs from Beni Rugs it was love at first sight.
Apart from being stylish and totally unique, the best part is that they are handmade by a community of Berber descendants. The company combines ethics and aesthetics – By employing local artisans, using sustainable materials and sticking with traditional methods (that are generations old) these rugs that will sit so happily in your abode simply ooze character, stories and tales as old as time. (It takes one woman in the community almost one month to weave a rug one knot at a time)
The right rug adds warmth, character and charm to any room, it feels somewhat incomplete without one. Without sounding too cliché, it really does make a house a home.
Simply pick your design, choose your colour and size and the lovely folk at Beni Rugs will take care of the rest.
“It takes six hands to tend the sheep, and two hands to shear them. Four hands to wash the wool in the Oum Er-Rbia River, and two to spin the wool into yarn. Two hands to dye the yarn, then four to work the loom. The final four hands carry it to the city, wrap it up nice and tight, and air-ship it straight to your door. No machines, just twenty-four hands and a tradition older than Morocco itself.”- Beni Rugs
