Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG_246

A vintage Beni M’Guild with a more minimal approach, featuring a monochromatic color field of saturated cobalt abruptly shifting to a faded sky blue. A few striking bands of the lighter tone lend a sense of intrigue and surprise. The composition is framed entirely by a bold checker motif knotted in dark brown and poppy red. A few squares escape the otherwise organized border, floating in an orderly way. Constructed of all wool with a beautiful time faded patina. Please note a few areas of dye transfer exist, which do not detract from the charm and character of the piece.

Beni M'Guild

The Beni M'Guild tribe has a long tradition of carpet making...their work tends to be quite dense, as tribes of this region weave their pieces to withstand the harsh cold climate of the Middle Atlas Mountains. Common Berber symbolism can be found in many of their woven works, while other carpets are created with solid fields, devoid of any patterns or motifs. Variations in dye lots fade over the decades, showing as subtle nuances in hue (abrash), often creating waves of color. Sometimes, the dense pile reveals a hidden pattern from below.
