A Guide to Choosing a Berber Rug and Beni Ourain Rug

Traditional Berber rugs are hand-woven by the native Berber tribes of Morocco, and this is where the rugs get their name. These rugs are well-known around the world for their craftsmanship and they are often hand-selected for their style and quality. Beni Ourain rugs are also popular because of their traditional and contemporary styles. You can find a huge selection of these types of rugs online since they are becoming very popular in interior design right now.

What is a Berber Carpet?

Dating back to 622 A.D., the history of the Berber rug begins where familial weaving patterns were taught to Berber women. Their training would include color ranges and looping techniques from the time they were just small girls while watching their mothers and grandmothers weave intricately designed rugs and carpets.

Professional master weavers from eastern tribes would often give vintage Berber carpets to elite families as gifts. These carpets were crafted by hand from sheared wool that came from sheep in the Atlas Mountains. It is the quality of these master weavers that tribespeople in Morocco still follow today.

Moroccan Berber Carpet Weaving History

The Moroccan Berber tribes of North Africa have an illustrious and long-lasting tradition of making some of the finest hand woven carpets and rugs in the world. Today, there are about 45 Berber tribes scattered across Morocco and each one has its own unique design as well as embroidery and weaving style. However, there are two common characteristics among all the different types of carpets and rugs that are produced by the different tribes: the richness of colors (red and saffron) and simplicity of design.

Moroccan Beni Ourain Rugs

A Beni Ourain rug is unique from others because it is produced using an excellent high grade of wool that goes into every rug made by the Beni Ourain tribes. These tribes consist of a total of 17 that live in the Atlas Mountains where the sheep are raised at higher elevations. These rugs are mostly woven by women who incorporate design elements from their personal experience into the carpet designs. These designs were created as references to aspects of daily life or natural events such as:

    • Birth
    • Nature
    • Fertility
    • Femininity
    • Beliefs
    • Rural life
    • Spirituality

Beni Ourain rug designs are sought after item by top interior designers who are constantly looking to feature them as rug décor. Some of the tribe people who weave these rugs believe that the carpets can ward off evil spirits. They also incorporate Lucky charms and other virtuous design elements into rug patterns to ward off evil spirits and bring good luck and fortune. The traditional patterns and style of these rugs come with abstract and diamond shapes that are made of mostly geometric black or brown lines. The background is often cream or whitish in color.

Mandolin Strings

Music is the language of the soul. According to recent studies, music play a huge role in the development of a child. Musical instruments, as simple as a drum for beating, helps a toddler develop the concept of cause and effect and hand coordination. When they get older, those that progress to musical instruments like the mandolin and its accessories like flatwound mandolin strings seem to have more creativity and artistry too. Studies have shown the babies in utero who listen to classical music tend to have higher IQs than those who weren’t exposed to music.

Tube Combo Guitar Amplifiers

My sister and I bought my younger brother an electric guitar. That was our Christmas present to him a couple of years ago. He had been asking for it for quite a while and we finally gave in. Instead of buying it here in the US and having it shipped to the Philippines, we sent him cash so he could buy it there. That way we saved money on shipping and he could buy the electric guitar that he wanted. The money that we sent was not enough to buy a really good amplifier so he might be in need of an upgrade in that area. Maybe the next time we go over there, we can look for a nice laney ironheart guitar combo that would make his guitar sound a lot better.

Recording Gear

Behringer FCA610 Firepower/USB Audio Interface  One of my younger brothers is in a local band. He is a guitarist. Since he is interested in guitars, the amps and such, I am sure he dreams to have a great behringer fca610 at https://www.musiciansfriend.com to go along with the electric guitar that my sister and I bought for him. Actually, he bought the guitar himself we just sent him the money. The guitar wasn’t the fancy kind but he was grateful to have one. That probably made his friends jealous because among of his friends, he is the only one that has an electric guitar.
