This vintage Beni Mguild, Lyv, is even more beautiful in person! It is an absolute standout piece that will add both beauty and wow factor to any space. The color shifts from rich berry to faded purples with a cream and brown broken diamond pattern throughout. There are areas of the rug that are quite rich and others very faded. The photos show representation of all the variations and were taken in natural light. *Styled room photo has been edited but no dramatic changes were made.
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. The amazing thing about this is that it means that 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.
