Repairing a Moroccan Beni Ourain Rug - Before Pictures



Flip through any shelter magazine or turn on any HGTV show and you'll undoubtedly come across a lovely Moroccan Beni Ourain rug or two (or three, or four?).   Beni Ourain rugs - with their muted palettes and simple geometric motifs - are indeed quite lovely.  They are fantastic rugs to decorate around as they ground a space while lending a room instant texture and character.  They single-handedly give a room a sense of hygge that seems to be THE thing that everyone wants in their 2017 home.  I personally love Beni Ourain rugs and appreciate how they complement my more colorful Turkish and Persian rugs so beautifully.  The one drawback of Beni Ourain rugs is that their lovely thick pile is attractive not only to us lovers of all things beautiful, but also to moths.  A large section of this Beni Ourain rug (almost 2' x 3') was eaten by moths.  In the following posts, we will share how we restored it to its former glory.  --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
