Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG_121

This vintage Beni M'Guild exhibits a striking composition, with a field of faded salmon shifting to a band of magenta and fuchsia creating a bold contrast. The diffuse pattern of indigo and grass green is knotted in a lower pile, occasionally visible throughout the ground. This carpet was woven to be reversible, showing its clear Berber message in the motifs on the reverse flat side. 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.
