This overall violet rug has flecks of faded pink throughout which create an almost glowy effect in the background, accented by a band of muted red in the lower third of the rug. The pattern is done in orange and marigold, with dark gray accents. Like many Beni Mguilds, it definitely serves up it's share of color! It would be the perfect statement piece in a living room or bedroom!
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 beauty and character while telling a story about where they were before June + Blue.
