Excuse my laziness, I don’t quite feel like making this a bilingual post- so you guys get a break from scrolling- this one is all in English!
These images are a combination of 2 trips. A scarf store, and strictly tapesttry (rugs, blankets, etc) store.
The process is really intricate, and I could never even attempt to operate the machinery.
At this particular store, I learned that blankets (above) were the mens’ work, and rugs (below) were the womens’ work.
Although that store was pretty pricey, it wasn’t hard to see why- all of the patterns were amazingly intricate, and the fabric was of high quality. Some of it made of wool, and quite a lot made from camel’s wool (interesting, right?)
Although I didn’t make a purchase from that shop, I went crazy in the scarf store, where the workers were gracious enough to teach us how to tie scarves in different styles.
Check me out with the gypsy style!
