This beautiful Beni Ourain is a true one-of-a-kind! There is a classic diamond pattern throughout, accented with abstract symbols which are randomly placed in and around the diamonds. These symbols were woven in to commemorate an event in the life of the woman who made it. Some of the symbols in this piece are known to represent fertility, labor, childbirth, and protection, while others are harder to decipher. The background is natural cream wool with symbols in varying shades of pink, flecks of orange, and an outline in dark gray.
Vintage Berber rugs were not made for production, but as functional pieces to be used for many years and passed down through generations. The colors and patterns are a combination of traditional Berber symbolism and the personal expressions of the woman who made it. No two are the same!
Note: Each of these pieces has a story that started long before it’s arrival to June + Blue and may show signs of wear and fading. These imperfections are signs of authenticity and character, not flaws. Anything of note is included in the listing. All rugs are cleaned, and any repairs needed are done in Morocco before exporting.
