Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BGR15

This charming vintage Moroccan runner features a grid-like network of bars intersected by vertical bands. Interchanging placement of coral red, green, and black provides a sense of rhythm. One corner holds a lozenge chain, adding a spontaneous surprise to an otherwise rather orderly composition. Woven in wool and mixed fibers, with a time worn patina and some repairs.

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.
