Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG95

This exceptional Beni M'Guild carpet exhibits a classic Berber message in an unusual palette. A large central lozenge motif is filled and surrounded with smaller lozenges, creating a reverberating effect. Knotted in plum, fig, deep purple, pale blue/green, indigo, and teal. The colors have faded over time, lending a lovely aged patina and depth to the piece. Note there are a few areas of restoration and some fringe loss, which does not detract from the carpet's overall character or condition. 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.
