Beni Mellal Kilim

This flatwoven wool rug was created by hand in the area around Beni Mellal in the Middle Atlas.

It has a wonderful colour palette - with a red ground displaying variations running from deep brick red to a paler burnt rose, lifted by bands of ochre, saffron and charcoal. Embroidered berber motifs echo the colour scheme of the ground of the rug.
