Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG_150

An exceptional mid-century vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild in a striking dark palette. The field of jet black and charcoal lends a high contrast ground to the motifs. Double vertical bands of overscale lozenges are separated by smaller bands holding double triangles. The rather classic imagery unexpectedly meets a flurry of triangles at one end. Knotted in emerald green, fire red, pale yellow, salmon, and ivory. Constructed in a fine low pile with a lustrous hand. 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.
