Diamond Dreams - Beni Ouarain loop pile rug (Bnchgra)


 This all natural, exceptionally elegant and subtle, deep cream Bnchgra (loop pile weaving) is a throw back to more ancient weaving techniques. The loop pile weavings are made almost exclusively by Beni Ouarain women in the Middle Atlas regions of Morocco.  This one in particular shows a wonderful mixed weaving techinique of loop pile, mixed with berber knots and ZS2 (twisted) pile.
