THIS RUG'S STORY:
This colorful rug reminds me of a confectioner's dream with pinks, blue/green, and purple tones. Featuring the traditional diamond pattern that is very traditional for this tribe, but the fun loving colors that would be gorgeous in the color lover space. The Beni M'Guild tribe originates from the Middle Atlas Mountains region in Morocco. These rugs typically feature higher dense pile and thick knot construction. This was to provide warmth during the harsh winters!
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 up to 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.
