Are you looking for a rug to match Shabby Chic or Boho decor?

Among the High Atlas Mountain ranges of Morocco, the Beni Ourain nomadic Berber tribes weave an interesting rug in both texture and design. The pile of the rug in long and soft like a shaggy and the designs are juvenilely drawn diamonds and other symbols that give the rug a unique contemporary appeal. It’s hard to imagine such styling handed from generation to generation is actually a traditional pattern.

As with any traditional rug each symbol in the design has a meaning. It’s a long and complex subject breaking down the meaning of a Berber rug design many of the symbols are gender specific and relate to heath wellbeing. The popular diamonds and triangles are usually a message to ward off the Evil Eye, chevrons, snakes and most other animals along with hooked lines are symbols of fertility. A line of diamonds represents birth and a nest of diamonds embodies motherhood while a series of triangles exemplifies the different seasons.

The Atlas collection is a range of machine woven rugs on a thick shaggy texture that personify the popular Beni Ourain diamond designs. Produced in a two ply polypropylene these rugs luxurious, stain resistant and durable. It's an ideal floor filler for Shabby Chic and Boho Decor styles
