The term "beni mguild" refers to a Moroccan tribe who originate from the Middle Atlas Mountains in the region of Taza. The sheep in these tribes are known for producing the best wool in the world due to its super soft texture. Historically, the rugs made by this tribe were used as beds and blankets for the cooler months, which explains why they have a long pile for extra warmth. Interestingly, the weavers saw the pile side as the back of the carpet and the flat side as the front - if you turn the carpet over you will more easily see the design and narrative.

Like most berber rugs, this vintage rug has been have been handwoven by a women in the tribe, using wool that has also been handspun.  One of the characteristics of the "beni mguild" rug is it's thick and shaggy pile which sits just as easy in any modern home!
