This lively Azilal runner features a central abstracted design of checker forms, surrounded by other floating Berber motifs including chains of open and closed V-formations, lozenges and zig zags. Woven in a combination of fibers, creating a contrast between cotton and wool dyes. Knotted in a palette of faded apricot, salmon, bright pink, faded pink, brick red and black on a cotton warp and weft. Hints of various colors from the weft yarns peek through the pile, adding further texture and depth to the piece.

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.
