The Beni Ourain cushions are made from vintage Beni Ourain rugs which are 100% sheep’s wool, hand woven in Morocco. They have a soft buttermilk tone with a simple large black lattice design on top. Just like the rugs these cushions are very popular in the interior design world and are all one of a kind. Sourced on my travels within Morocco.
Beni Ourain Berber tribes made these rugs to protect themselves from the harsh winter in the Atlas Mountains where the temperatures are the lowest in Africa. The Beni Ourain rug was traditionally made as bedding to keep the tribes warm which is why they have such a thick pile.
