This stunning piece from the Beni Mguild tribe is a perfect image of Berber weaving culture. Grounded in tradition with its classic pattern, but full of heart and personal expression with its bold and whimsical color combination. Different shades of purple and orange make up the background, with more subtle tones of yellow and navy adding detail to the pattern. This rug was made to hold a whole room together, and it's the perfect size for it too!
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. No two are the same!
