Hora del Té

Our ¨Hora del Té¨ carpet is a beautiful vintage piece from the Beni Ourain tribe. This carpet sets itself apart from the rest with the woven detail of a teapot and teacups that symbolise the Berber hospitality.

You can find small knots in shocking red, blue and green that show the creativity of the weaver. Traditionally these types of details are to send small messages to family members. Originally these carpets were designed to flip over in the summer which is why on each side, front and back, there is the same rows of knots.  This detail adds extra value to the piece.

The shine of the wool of this carpet shows its luxurious quality. Approximately 15 years old.

Tribal tradition

The Berber tribe Beni Ouarain or sometimes called Ait Ouarain lives in the Middle Atlas region in Morocco. Its weavers are known for their simplicity and purity of lines. These undyed wool carpets give off a long-haired and silky effect in cream base colours with designs of black diamonds. Once in a while we can find Berber symbols within the diamonds. Traditionally these carpets were used in the bed to protect from the cold winter nights. Each summer they were flipped over. Every carpet is original and unique in its design and they are considered symbols of timeless modern design.

Travel notes: After getting to know the Middle Atlas region of Morocco, we recommend the route through the Tazekka National Park. There you will find different semi-nomadic villages. On the paths of Boulemane we saw how the nomadic women wash their clothes in the river, how the work together to wash their carpets.
