Berber rugs are handwoven by the tribespeople of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. You might see Berber rugs referred to as Beni Ourain rugs; Beni Ourain is the name of the particular group of Berber tribes who produce these luxurious rugs.
Each rug has a unique geometric design. They come in three sizes (medium, large and extra large), offering a tremendous amount of variety. We have hundreds of rugs in stock at our Fulham showroom, why not come down to view (and feel) these exquisite rugs yourself? We even offer a ‘try before you buy’ scheme; take a selection of rugs home with you to help you decide which will best complement your room, then simply return the items you don’t need. Call 0207 099 6616 to arrange a viewing. Our showroom has convenient off-street parking.
We travel to Morocco to meet with our suppliers and ensure we are able to supply the finest Berber rugs. We pay the craftspeople, usually the women of the tribe, a fair price for their craftsmanship and place large orders to allow us to offer great value to our customers. This means we are able to ethically source the most exquisite, genuine Berber rugs.
The craftswomen use natural dyes, including henna, indigo and cochineal, to create the subtle, abstract designs that characterise Berber rugs. The thick, soft wool comes from an ancient breed of small Atlas Mountain sheep; this gives these rugs a distinctive, thick shaggy pile that just cannot be replicated.
