Vintage Beni Mguild | Pippa
166 cm x 343 cm (5' 5" x 11' 3")
Age : 30-35 years
Pippa is the ultimate "it" girl. She is feminine and sweet with her faded fuschia, pinks and flecks of gold, but has an edge of cool from the tan and navy accents that show up throughout the rug. Faded and worn in just the right places, this vintage Beni Mguild is a true treasure!
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.
Berber rugs were not made for production, but as functional pieces to be used for many years and passed down through generations. All the beautiful colors and patterns used have a true meaning behind them that are personal expressions of the woman who made it. These pieces can show signs of wear which I believe adds to their beauty 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.
