High pile 

The moss green pile on this vintage Beni Mguild is an incredibly rare find and the berry colored pattern that peaks subtly from the back only adds to its unique character. The tone of the green makes a moody, earthy statement while being subtle enough to blend with almost any color scheme. It could land just about anywhere, and completely transform the space with little effort! 

 The Beni Mguild tribe originates from the Middle Atlas mountains and traditionally made their carpets to protect them from harsh mountain winters. They were used to cover cold floors, and even as blankets when the temperatures were in their lowest.

Vintage Berber rugs were not made for production, but as functional pieces to be used for many years and passed down through generations. The colors and patterns are a combination of traditional Berber symbolism and the personal expressions of the woman who made it. These pieces can show signs of wear which adds to their character and value, while telling a story about where they were before June + Blue.  

All rugs are cleaned, and any repairs needed are done in Morocco before shipment.
