Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG60

The field is knotted in faded pomegranate with a band of bright red adding a striking detail. Motifs are woven in light turquoise/celadon, bright pink, orange, charcoal, and ivory. A few older repairs are present, which do not detract from the overall character or condition of 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.
