Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG52

A monochromatic Beni M'Guild in an unusual abrash of green with highlights of lighter yellow/green throughout. The color shifts in waves across the field due to dye lot variations and fading, creating a subtle depth and texture. A few scattered knots represent agricultural motifs, providing contrast in red and orange against the ground. Finished with red and orange flat weave at both ends. 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.
