Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG05

This extraordinary vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild carpet exhibits an older tradition to the tribe's weaving technique. A teal blue lozenge pattern lies just beneath the pile of cranberry red, tangerine, and light magenta wool. This carpet was woven to be reversible, showing its clear Berber message in the motifs on the back side. Can be used pile side down during warmer months and up during colder seasons, or reverse as you wish...this piece offers two unique carpets as one. 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.
