Beni Ourain Carpet - 260x165cm - Selma - Natural Wool - 3475
Beni Ourain: The Ultimate Wool Carpet. Handmade in Morocco from the very finest wool by our team of 6 women in the Atlas Mountains. They are very soft and they can be passed from generation to generation.
It takes 280 hours of weaving to complete a Beni Ourain rug and 4 different steps: hand spinning of the wool, knotting the rug, yeing and trimming and washing.
Is it the right size for me?
260x165cm is the perfect size for 2 seater sofa. Best is to get a rug the width of your sofa and ideally add 12cm (6inches) to both sides. But this is not necessary. Orient the rug to the shape of the room.
Wool vs Synthetic carpets?
Synthetic carpets are up-front cheaper but wool carpets are a better investment and extremely durable and high-quality.
The Pros of Wool Carpets
