Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG_123

Woven with variegated low pile, this vintage Beni M'Guild carpet has a diffuse lozenge network hidden beneath the ground. The field of coral red, orange and violet shifts in color creating horizontal bands, occasionally allowing hints of light yellow and green to shine through. Side ladder borders frame the composition, while a flat weave end caps the piece adding even more detail. 100% wool with a beautiful patina.

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.
