The Loft - Beni Ouarain carpet 05

The Beni Ouarain are from the Northeastern Middle Atlas and are know for their big dichromatic woven carpets. The patterns are made in a semi-intuitive way and the techniques are handed down from generation to generation. This beauty measures 185 cm x 290 cm.

Foreign Objects collects the most interesting and rare Berber carpets from the Riff and Atlas mountains of Morocco. These carpets offer an unusual combination of minimalism, handmade detail and inventive asymmetry that continues to allure people’s imagination.

Berber carpets are prized and collected the world over. From early, iconic modernist architects like Le Corbusier and Alvar Aalto, to a new generation of architects and interior designers.
The patterns woven into these carpets are a combination of tribal traditions, improvisation and personal expression.
