Example text

Small bags have been replaced by plastic or leather purses. Cloth belts and straps have seemingly entirely disappeared and been replaced by leather. Embroidered blankets are still made. The blankets themselves are usually purchased in the suq and are seldom of 100% wool. The designs, while pleasing and decorative, are seldom as densely applied as in the past. 1. Woman spinning wool into thread. 3. Woman spinning thread into yarn. 2. Man spinning wool into thread. Note that the spindle is notched on both ends so that it can be used by either a man or a woman.

Both ends of such a carpet are made in flat-woven style for a length of about 30 cm. The pile consists of two-ply yarn cut in appropriate lengths, and the shorter the strands, the cheaper the rug. Strands are cut on a grooved wood or reed stick of appropriate diameter (mahsaja, pl. mahiisaj]. The yarn is wrapped around the stick, and a knife blade run down the groove cuts several strands at once. As long as her stick is in good condition, the pile of a weaver's carpets is fairly uniform. The design in the pile section comes of course from the use of various colored threads knotted to the warp, but the woof is almost always also dyed wool, usually of a single color and in the majority of cases the color chosen is orange.
