Description
A great old Berber carpet from Morocco, woven by the Beni Mguild tribes of the Middle Atlas Mountains. An earlier example featuring one of the best known designs of this tribe in richly saturated colors.

Though less famous than their neighbours, the Beni Ouarain, the weaving of the Beni Mguild represent an equally rich, authentic and ancient tradition of Berber culture.
