Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG_132

This Beni M'Guild exhibits a striking pattern in an unusual palette. An irregular lozenge network in taupe grey highlighted with ivory spans the field, floating over a field of warm grey/brown natural wool. A shift in pattern scale and ground color occurs, changing to a soft faded salmon. 100% wool on a goat hair warp.

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.
