This year I went to Marrakech to visit my friends who make these beautiful rugs. We traveled to Azilal, the Middle Atlas and High Atlas Mountains. Some villages are far away from regular roads, so going there is some kind of adventure. We found some very nice Beni Ourain in "Royal" quality - these rugs have the best wool and a finer structure than traditional qualities. Also they have "whiter" wool (it is never snow white).
