Beni M'Guilds come from the Middle Atlas region and feature higher pile and repetitive patterns with geometric shapes. This one has a more abstract pattern and bold dark purple and berry colors, giving it a very powerful presence! It would be a total showstopper! This vintage Beni M'Guild is a powerhouse find! Although the colors are rich, it is a very versatile piece that could be great in either a modern or traditional space. Beni's are known for their beauty on both sides of the rug. As shown in the last picture, the backside is very beautiful so you reverse and display this side as well.
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.
