In Arabic, "Badia" means unique and this is especially apropos for this Beni Ouarain rug. Its abstract pattern illustrates the infinite variations on a black/white theme by the creative women weavers of the Middle Atlas mountains. The simplicity but cleverness of this unexpected motif in dark brownish black wool stands out from the contrasting natural ivory color of the background wool. Traditionally, Beni Ouarains are used as Berber blankets during the cold winter months. We do wonder what the enigmatic design represents, but wherever you find a special place for this stunning work of art... it will quickly become a beloved part of your decor. For a less plush look, especially in summer, this rug is reversible.
