Typically woven of natural ivory wool with a geometric black or brown pattern, the Beni Ouarain style is characteristic of the nomadic Berber tribe. Often selected for bedding in this cold region, the Beni Ouarain is a versatile product, suitable to be displayed underfoot, as a wall adornment, or as a heavy blanket. Known for its thick pile construction and double-knotted weaving technique, this style is among the most durable as well. Symbolism is significant in this weaving technique.
