Beni M'Guild rugs come from the Middle Atlas region and feature higher pile and repetitive patterns with geometric shapes. This one is unlike most - she actually has lower pile, and the design is more freeform and asymmetrical like you'd find in a Boujad rug, with various symbols. The pile has been worn down, but don't be deceived - this is a heavy rug! You can even find a date that it was likely created in (1997) and a name in there. Such a unique one with so much character!
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.
