a piece of morocco

Moroccan rugs add such an interesting element to a room. Traditionally, Moroccan rugs have been woven by tribal peoples for their utility rather than for decorative purposes (typically used as bedding in the winter months). The above two photos show beautiful examples of the rugs of the Beni Ourain tribe of  Morocco's Atlas Mountains. This tribe's rugs are usually heavy cream or white pile with geometric designs and are hugely popular in the West.
