Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG_107

This lively Beni M'Guild carpet is woven primarily in wool with some cotton, lending to the intensity of some colors (bright orange and emerald green) and subtleties of others (coral red and pale pink). An irregular network of Berber lozenges in dark purple, emerald green and ivory span the field, framed by side borders along both selvedges.

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.
