Remarkable "hanbel" of the Beni M'Guild tribe, from the region south of Fez and Meknes. The presence of very dark indigo witnesses an earlier production from the middle of the 20th century. It could well be much older though, as it's stylistically similar to productions already referenced by Prosper Ricard in his inventory of 1923. Maintained in a perfect state of conservation, it possesses today all the qualities of a piece belonging to a museum.
Its technical mastery is as rare as precious, and the complexity of the embroidered patterns is a real demonstration, acting as a graphic inventory.
From the global composition down to the smallest detail, we are dealing with an exemplary piece of what has become richer and more successful in this famous tribe. In other words; we are faced with an authentic masterpiece.
