Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG_166

Featuring a belted lozenge network in bright orange, magenta, and deep blue with hints of ivory floating on a mossy green field, this Beni M’Guild bares a classic motif structure with a substance and heft of its own. The composition shifts near the top of the piece to a smaller scale band of lozenges and double triangle motifs, with the change in thought defined by horizontal bands. Rather symmetrical side borders run along both selvedges. Note there is some minor bleeding of the orange dye present in localized areas. 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.
