This rug is 100% undyed sheep's wool. Dimensions: 13'1" x 5'06".

This rug was woven by the Beni Ourain tribes of the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. These tribes are traditionally nomadic goat and sheep herders that roam with their herds between grazing lands in the high mountains. At these high elevations, the sheep produce a high quality wool that is used to create these rugs. For the Beni Ourain tribes, weaving is a tradition passed from mother to daughter. The patterns are not planned beforehand; rather, they are produced spontaneously during the weaving process. The motifs record every day life, such as nature, religious beliefs, and birth. Weavers also often include symbols of luck to protect against evil spirits.
