Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG97

This vintage Beni M'Guild exhibits a classic pattern in a vibrant color story. The traditional eight pointed star motif knotted in orange, celadon green and ivory, morphs into a ten pointed star near the top of the carpet. An unusual ground palette includes an abrash of faded apricot, dusty pink, saffron, mustard yellow with a striking horizontal band of crimson. Low pile construction with a few areas of wear, which do not detract from overall condition or character of the piece. 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.
