Aubergine

1.695 VAT included

An excellent example of Beni M’Guild woven with a complex Berber message full of classical feminine symbology. It is impressive the quality of these rich designs which can be seen perfectly in the back. An abrupt change in the structure of rhombuses indicates a spontaneous change of thoughts of his weaver. The eggplant, indigo, brown, ochre orange, red, olive green, crude and violet palette which have faded over time, giving character and a warm patina to this piece. Two rugs in one, as they traditionally turned them over in the warmer months. This piece offers two unique rugs as a single one. You can put it as you want.

Legacies of the past

The carpets Beni M’Guild can be found near the cities of M’Rirt, Arzrou and Ain Leuh in the Middle Atlas region. Ben M’Guild carpets together with the Beni Ouarain carpets represent a legacy from the past. These carpets are normally quite dense since this tribe needs to deal with extreme temperatures. Their weavers create a great variety of symbols in their geometric carpets. Although they also sometimes use solid colour without any design. These solid ones are often in a colour scheme of blue, aubergine and red creating waves of hues. Beni M'Guild carpets have great character and an elegant presence.

Travel notes: On the road from Azrou going towards M’Rirt, in the spring, you can see the growing vegetation in an incredible array of colours: yellows, violets, greens and browns. You can often find donkeys parked on the side of the road.
