Beni Ourain rugs are known for being made in the north east of Morocco, not in the Ait Bougamez Valley. However, the heritage of many women in Imelghas is linked to the Beni Ourain tribe, through marriage for example, and is is why you'll see many Beni Ourain and Beni Ourain style rugs made by Cooperative of Imelghaus.
