Beni Mguild rugs
Beni Mguild rugs are a type of traditional Moroccan rug that originates from the Beni Mguild region in the Middle Atlas mountains of Morocco. They are known for their intricate geometric patterns and bold, vibrant color combinations. They are made by the Beni Mguild tribe, which is a sub-group of the Berber people, who are known for their skilled craftsmanship.
One of the unique characteristics of Beni Mguild rugs is their intricate geometric patterns. The patterns often feature diamond shapes, triangles, and zigzags, as well as abstract symbols that hold cultural significance. The designs are bold and striking, and they often feature a wide range of colors such as red, blue, yellow, green, and pink.
Another unique aspect of Beni Mguild rugs is the materials used. They are made from high-quality wool, which is sourced from the local sheep and then hand-spun and naturally dyed using resources found in the area. This results in a rug that is soft, durable, and long-lasting.
