These natural rustic vintage mid-century modern rugs were used to offset the clean modern lines of the interior designs and had an exotic appeal as well.
These beautifully woven carpets from Morocco continue to have an appeal in boho-chic designs and eco-friendly decors, as well as other modern designs.

The design of this spectacular vintage Shag Beni Ourain Moroccan Berber rug wanders imperfectly across the rug, giving it a primitive look and feel. The ground of the rug is defined by two chocolate lines along the sides. It does not appear to have vertical or horizontal symmetry that can be easily distinguished. The pattern does not appear to have any regularity about it, giving it a whimsical and organic charm that reflects the natural world.
This vintage Shag Beni Ourain Moroccan Berber rug boasts a graphically dense design that is reminiscent of a contemporary abstract modern art painting. The weavers often incorporated ancestral myths or their personal stories into the images and symbols of the rug.
