Beni Mguild

Beni Mguild rugs originate from the western central Middle Atlas region of Morocco, and as with most regions, they have their own style. The weavers in this region like to take the designs commonly found in flat weave rugs, and adapt them to their pile weave, hand knotted creations. This creates bold, flowing imagery that captures the joyous character of the weaver herself.

A common theme with Beni Mguild rugs is the darker tones, with earlier rugs dominated by Indigo Blue, but examples also include dark reds and browns as well. Those darker colors provide a stunning backdrop for the design, and they create stunning and interesting effects through the natural ageing process. Our vintage range are carefully sourced to identify genuine, naturally aged rugs that have the character and patina that makes each a unique work of art in its own right.

Whatever your interior space, those darker colors and inventive use of shapes along with the beautiful Berber craftsmanship, create a superb piece of art that will be a conversation starter for everyone who sees it. The Beni Mguild rugs bring so much of the weaver’s character and passion for Berber craft with them, giving any interior space a flavor of Morocco and a reminder of the rich history that represents.

The colors and design may vary from piece to piece, but the pure wool, hand knotted construction, crafted by weavers using skills passed down to them through the tribe for generations, is always there. Each rug is a celebration of the skills of the women who made them, their creativity shines in the design, and that is the reason these rugs are so sought after.

Nothing compares to a truly hand-crafted rug, with our Beni Mguild range offering a broad range of styles, colors and ages to suit every taste and interior space.

Boucherouite

Boucherouite rugs mark a significant change in the story of traditionally crafted Moroccan rugs. Instead of the pure wool used in those, Boucherouite rugs use cotton as the main material. They are still hand made with the care and attention that Moroccan rugs are famous for, and artisans from tribes across the regions still use the skills and knowledge handed down over centuries to create them. The change these rugs represents has had a significant, positive impact on the cultural, social and economic situation for the rural regions where they are produced.

The rugs themselves have a texture and feel all of their own, and in combination with the vibrant colors, wonderful patterning and exceptional, handmade quality that all Moroccan rugs have, make for an impressive piece in any living space. With these Boucherouite being made from across the region, there are a wide variety of designs, and whether you prefer the more subdued look or something that offers a more colorful approach, there is a Boucherouite rug that will suit.

The rugs here covered both new and vintage offerings, with vintage rugs having an attractive patina of age, but carefully selected to ensure they maintain the quality you expect. The unique, heavy texture of the Boucherouite rug creates a wonderful effect on the designs and colors, bringing their own feel and tone to your home. Each design is filled with the character of the Berber craftswoman who made it, giving you not only a luxurious, beautiful piece for your home, but a taste of the soul of Morocco too.

Our range of Boucherouite rugs gives you a range of unique designs to choose from, whatever your taste and style there is the perfect rug for you here.

Boujaad

Found in the Eastern part of the Haouz, the region around Boujaad produces some of the most beautiful Moroccan rugs available today. They have a similar course structure to the rugs made around the Middle Atlas, however the imagery and design within is very different from any traditional rug you may have seen from other regions.

While the designs incorporate the basic shapes associated with Berber craft, squares, triangles and lozenges, these rugs have a less formal arrangement, Designs are driven by the weaver themselves, using shape and color as a pictorial language to tell a personal story or message. In this way, these pieces are characterful and poignant, and like all good art, inspire thought and conversation.

The region has seen an influx of different groups, ideas and cultures over the years, and that diversity is reflected in the rugs themselves. The pile weaves vary, and while they may not have the history of some more established regions as a result, in combination with the expressive nature of the patterning and design, each piece has something different to offer.

Bold use of color and the spontaneity of the weaver in the way shapes are used create striking imagery that looks amazing in any setting. The contrast with the clean lines of a modern interior is particularly pleasing, but wherever you place a Boujaad rug, it stands out as a wonderful, tactile piece of art.

Our vintage Boujaad rugs are painstakingly sourced to ensure quality and character, with the ageing process adding another layer of story to each rug. They bring the essence of Morocco and the spirit of Berber craft to your interior space. Hand knotted in the traditional way and made from pure, natural wool, our Boujaad rugs represent the best of the region, high-quality pieces that bring Moroccan tradition to life, with wonderful craftsmanship and beauty.
