PLEASE NOTE: This rug has several old repairs that were made over the years. These repairs were already done when the rug was discovered, and have worn in to become part of the rug. The breaks in pattern are noticeable in some areas, and can be seen in the photos. These imperfections do not compromise the integrity of the rug. The buyer should consider these as added charm and marks of the history of this piece.
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!
Note: Each of these pieces has a story that started long before it’s arrival to June + Blue and may show signs of wear and fading. These imperfections are signs of authenticity and character, not flaws. Anything of note is included in the listing. All rugs are cleaned, and any repairs needed are done in Morocco before exporting.
All rug sales are final. Please do not hesitate to ask for more details on a specific rug.
