Soraya is a very bold and colorful Beni M'Guild rug. Beni M'Guilds come from the Middle Atlas mountain region and feature higher pile and repetitive patterns with geometric shapes. This one's pattern is striking with a center diamond focal point. The name "Soraya" means jewel, and is so fitting with the stunning jewel tones found in this rug. Beni's are known for the beauty on the reverse side. The backside is very beautiful and could be used on this side as well. Soraya was hand selected in Morocco for its stylish design and uniqueness.
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.
