Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG_127

This vintage Beni M'Guild carpet features an overall chevron pattern filled with Berber symbolism including zig zags, crosses, and triangle forms. Knotted in a time faded purple, magenta, and warm grey, with small moments of sable brown adding even more depth to the ground. The motifs are knotted in ivory, but suddenly shift to a bright indigo midway through the composition. Subtle color shifts occur across the carpet, adding depth and character to the piece. 100% wool with a time aged 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.
