Beni M'Guild Hanbel

SKU: HAN8000


This Hanbels (Blankets) display an interesting synthesis of the several design schemes and overall oblique lines. This Kilim is a very typical example of Beni M'Guild Tribe. The pattern is divided into vertical bands containing geometric motifs, especially diamonds. However the vertical movement is abruptly broken by a band of horizontal panels whose patterning carries the eye away at oblique angles. As some researchers have suggested, this design element symbolizes the limits in the space available for the nomads.
