Amazing Beni Ouirain Carpet

This amazing and rare Beni Ouirain carpet recently left a home in Marrakesh where it had been for the previous thirty years. Rarely have I seen a Berber carpet with such great detail in the design. Blending architectural features with abstract geometric forms, all very freely drawn, it presents a quite intriguing composition. The large squarish format is very unusual for Berber weavings, but is one which which would work well in many Western settings, both contemporary and traditional. Knotted with undyed ivory and brown wools, this carpet is a rare masterpiece. Obviously treated well by the previous owners, it has survived in very good condition with a soft pile. The original kilim ends and selvages are intact.
