Shara is a Beni Mguild rug handcrafted in the western region of the mid Atlas Mountains.

These rugs are handcrafted by the Berber women of Morocco and can take a few months to a year to complete. Each tribe has a particular style craft and the rugs are given the samesake of the tribe ie Boujaad, Beni Mguild, Beni Ourain.

Beni Mguild rugs are tradionally handknotted and known to be thick and lush, to protect from the cold. Often using colours like black, brown, aubergine, orange blue and red. These soft yet striking pieces are produced with soft wool using mostly natural food with dyes, henna and indigo. 

Each rug is individually handcrafted and maybe slightly asymmetrical in their shape and pattern with some minor imperfections.
