Beni M'Guild rugs are known for their deep colors and high pile. This rug has the deep color tones, but the pattern and low pile make it an interesting find. I named this Beni "Burnout" for its faded, aged look. The design is made up of small diamonds, which is quite rare for a Beni M'Guild. You can see the worn blacks and blues coming through in areas, which adds to the character. Hand selected in Morocco, this rug is a beautifully distressed collectors piece.
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 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 passed though the families who created them, and have been uncovered from the mountain and rural areas of Morocco.
