Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG_235

A Beni M'Guild featuring an intricate network of lozenges arranged in a complex puzzle-like composition. At first glance a few large diamonds appear, then upon further study, more large lozenges begin to come into focus. Substantial side borders are emphasized by dark outlines, further adding to the layered effect of the piece. Artfully woven in a saturated palette of pomegranate, poppy red, plum, orange, saffron yellow, celadon green, dark brown, and charcoal. Time faded dyes lend a beautifully aged patina. Constructed of all 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.
