The Beni Ouarain rugs, also known as "rugs for Kings", are considered the most prestigious rugs in Morocco. Hand woven from the natural ivory silky sheep wool by Berber women, Beni Ouarain rugs originally were made to protect Berber tribes from Atlas mountains against the cold. However, here in the Western world their main use has been as a floor covering. These magnificent rugs have the fascinating ability to connect the long history of the nomadic Berber tribes with modern day interiors.
