THIS RUG'S STORY:
Beni M'Guild rugs come from the Middle Atlas region and feature higher pile and repetitive patterns with geometric shapes. This vintage Beni M'Guild was one of my most favorite finds on my trip to Morocco right before the pandemic. I think the combination of colors is so bomb, but also it's in excellent condition and has so much life and spunk to it. This one checks all the boxes! She's a bold work of art that would light up any space.
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.
