Tribe Dubai are our agents for our beautiful custom made Beni rugs in Dubai and the UAE.  They will be moving to their fabulous new studio in The Courtyard, Al Quoz on the 1st September and we’re having some really great size samples made for them to keep in their studio and for loan to designers.  Tribe offer a free consultation service for their rugs, so they will be happy to bring samples out to your home to see exactly how they look in situ.  Contact Jo or Valentina at Tribe for more details!



Most of you will know that we offer a custom made service for the ever popular Beni Ouarain rugs. These rugs have always been woven with a superior quality soft, silky type wool which gives them a smooth appearance.  The geometric designs are woven with either black or brown wool and they usually have a short fringe at one end.

However, we are often asked about new, longer (shaggier) pile Beni rugs. There are lots of these around to buy, most of the new rugs are not produced from the best quality wool, and this is of course reflected in the price, but they are still a great addition to a contemporary space if you are on a budget. We have always been able to source this style of rug, but if we can’t find what you’re looking for, it is possible to commission a custom made rug with this type of finish, with a design modelled on the traditional vintage Beni rugs.

We were over the moon yesterday to see a photo of a recently completed custom made rug from Marrakech.  This beautiful Beni has been made using a vintage rug as a template, woven using the traditional designs and techniques employed by one specific tribe from the Beni Ouarain region.  A new rug with all the history and traditions of an old one….fabulous!  If you would like more information on commissioning a custom made Beni rug, please email us at

Custom made New Beni Ouarain rugs

Beni Ouarain rugs continue to be a favourite of interior designers around the world. With their simplistic designs and timeless appeal they continue to be a much sought after addition to contemporary homes. Unfortunately this has resulted in good quality vintage Beni rugs becoming increasingly difficult to source and therefore very expensive! Did you know that new Beni Ouarain rugs can be made to your own specification (size and design) in the finest quality sheep’s wool? New Beni Ouarain Marble and Mint are pleased to be able to offer this service to clients, with a lead time of only approximately 4 weeks.
