Beni Ourain rugs are famous for their black and white traditional design. This style comes from the High and Middle Atlas Mountains, and is not only made as a practical warm rug, but also as a decorative rug for celebrations. This simple plush rug handmade by Fatima Oulkadi could add warmth and a traditional Moroccan feel to any room, it measures 34”x 45” and would also make an amazing Wall Hanging!
This rug was one of 5 purchased (as a gesture) from 5 different women -each in 5 different women’s collectives on the eve before International Women’s Day. Antiquated Joys chooses not to profit from the sale of these rugs, but to revel in the the idea that each of the 5 women awoke on International Women’s Day to find the message that their beautiful work was valued, and had been sold. Each of the rugs is being offered at the same fair trade price paid to the artisans plus taxes, duty and shipping.
