This Beni M'Guild that was uncovered in the Middle Atlas region of Morocco. Beni's feature higher pile and intricate symmetrical pattern that is characteristic of this mountain tribe. Opulence has a color mix I haven't quite seen before. Beni M'Guilds are wonderful because they are reversible - as you'll see from the pictures, the back side of the rug is very striking too! Hand selected in Morocco, this rug is a unique piece of art.
ABOUT MOROCCAN RUGS:
Each vintage Moroccan rug is hand woven and knotted by Berber women of the tribal region specified. This level of craftsmanship can take weeks or months to complete a single rug. Weaving techniques have been passed down through the generations. The patterns, designs, and colors in each rug vary with each rug, weaver, and tribe – so each piece is truly a unique work of art and 2 pieces will never be the same. Often these rugs have been handed down through the families who created them, and have been uncovered from the mountain and rural areas of Morocco.
