This beautiful cushion has a slightly different twist on the original Beni in that the lattice is orange instead of black. The dyes that produce this colour are made from natural resources such as plants and berries. It goes perfectly with all other Beni Ourain textiles and is the perfect addition to a bohemian home. Made from 100% sheep’s wool, hand woven in Morocco. Just like the rugs these cushions are very popular in the interior design world and are 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.
