Such carpets are widely admired and sought after by collectors and designers, who prize these spectacular rugs for their great versatility and cultural authenticity. Almost prescient in their design work, the Beni Ourain produced carpets during the mid-twentieth century that would go on to enjoy decades of marked popularity.
