THIS RUG'S STORY:
Nadia is a very colorful and intricate Beni M'Guild rug. Beni M'Guilds are known for their rich colors and repetitive patterns. This one's pattern is cozy, worn, and slightly asymmetrical. A rare mix of cream and navy tones are featured.
Many times you will find the back of a Beni M'Guild rug is very impressive too. The tribe is located in the Middle Atlas Mountain region and the higher pile is reflective of the cold winter temperatures. Passed down through generations, this rug is a timeless work 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.
