Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG64

This Beni M'Guild features an ivory lozenge network overlaying a field of faded magenta, truffle brown, grey, bronze and ivory. The pattern abruptly breaks near the top of the carpet, lending spontaneity to an otherwise symmetrical composition. Note the almost square proportions and very functional size. 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.
