Beni M'guild

The Beni M'guild tribe has traditionally resided in the area referred to as the Central Middle Atlas and ranges from the lower pastoral foothills to the higher forested plateaus all the way up into the Atlas Mountains known for heavy snow cover like the "Hill Stations" of Ifrane known for Holidaying by the French. 

As a result the Beni M'guild rugs are known for a thicker pile due to the colder climate especially when they are weaved for sleeping upon. Medium density piles are utilized for floor coverings and more colour are typically applied to the wall hangings. Colour can also be utilized to identify the region as the rarer green type rugs are known to come from those tribes close to forested region which in present day and even the close past have become nearly non existant.
