Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG95

A great Beni M'Guild carpet with a classic Berber message is woven in an unusual palette. The ground is comprised in faded plum, fig, deep purple and sky blue, with the motifs in primarily indigo with a subtle shift at the top to a beautiful teal. The colors have faded over time, providing a beautiful aged patina and depth to the piece. There are a few areas of restoration and some fringe loss, consistent for a carpet of this age. 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.
