THIS RUG'S STORY:
This beautiful vintage Beni M'Guild almost appears solid ombre at first glance. The raspberry red color goes to purple at the opposite end! But if you look close you'll see the details that are in the pattern. Also, the back is so very stunning!
What's interesting about Beni M'Guild's is that they were created as more of a functional piece than a decorative one! They were traditionally used to sleep on or keep warm during the cold winter months in the Atlas Mountains. Very intricate in design and pattern, these rugs are very special.
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 up to 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.
