The real vintage Beni Ourain rugs you will never find wider than 220 cm / 7". So wider ones are likely new made and not vintage. The size between 200 cm and 220 cm is very hard to find. We think the vintage ones have real character and spirit. It is an expression of the daily life experiences of the persons who made it.
The wool is cream colored. It can have some differences in tone depending the wool color of the sheep.
Snow white vintage Beni Ourain rugs do not exist.
