Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG31

An unusual neutral double sided vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild carpet, displaying a dual color story. Knotted in a lush mink toned wool, with the reverse in subtle shades of dark brown. Some pile loss is present from age and wear, allowing hints of the reverse color to peek through. This does not detract from the overall quality of the piece, but rather adds to the character and patina. 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.
