Royal Flush is a Beni M'Guild that was made in the Middle Atlas region of Morocco. Beni's feature higher pile and intricate symmetrical pattern that is characteristic of this mountain tribe. In this particular rug, you can see the pattern show through more towards the bottom but it almost appears solid at the top pof the rug. It has a bold royal purple base with gold accents. Beni M'Guilds are wonderful because they are reversible - as you'll see from the pictures, the back side of the rug is very striking too! Hand selected during my most recent sourcing trip to Morocco, this rug is a unique piece of art.
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.
