beni ourain is the name of a collection of amazigh tribes in the atlas mountains east of fes. the difference in styles of moroccan rug can almost always be chalked up to tribal differences. this is one of the reasons morocco boasts such a rich diversity of weaving traditions.
modernist artists such as le corbusier are often credited with popularizing these rugs in the western world, however it is important to remember that the weaving tradition that produces these wonderful pieces was well established long before any europeans incorporated them into their own art and design.
