Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG_124

This lively Beni M'Guild displays an oversized chevron design, knotted in a palette of faded coral pink and magenta ground, with moments of orange, saffron yellow, dark brown, fire red and ivory. The reverberating pattern contains Berber motifs, which dissolve at the top of the composition into a less structured presentation. The ladder borders are partially filled along the carpet's borders, framing the carpet with some added symmetry. 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.
