Beni M'Guilds come from the Middle Atlas region and feature higher pile and repetitive patterns with geometric shapes. This rug was named for its masculine and royal vibes. Rich in tone and design, this rug gives a nod to the more traditional style Beni M'Guild rugs. I love the intricate diamond pattern and the combo of gold, orange, and navy tones in this one. This rug has lived a full past life, and is low pile with distinct areas of wear. We believe this adds to its character and story.
Beni's are known for the beauty on the reverse side. As shown in the pictures, the backside is could be displayed as well. Hand selected in Morocco, this is a one of a kind treasure that will work in almost any home.
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.
