Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG18

Reminiscent of the Moroccan landscape, this vintage Beni M'Guild echoes an abstracted vision of the horizontal plains. Color shifts throughout the monochromatic palette of burnt red/orange, deep salmon, and sienna create a very modern and minimal composition. Subtle color abrash adds depth to the piece. 100% wool.

Beni M'Guild

The territory of Azrou, Ain Lheu, and M'Rirt is the main production region for this tribe, neighboring the Zaïane. The Beni M'Guild tribe has a long tradition of carpet making...their work tends to be quite dense, as tribes in this region can withstand harsh climates. Common Berber symbolism can be found in many of their woven works, while other carpets are solid fields of natural color devoid of any patterns or motifs. Subtle nuances in hue create waves of color, sometimes revealing pattern from below.
