More Berber Rugs To See

I keep showing you the rugs that I find. I set up Google Alerts to let me know when anyone blogs about Berber Rugs and it paid off today.

The two links below are from a lecture that was given by R. John Howe: Textiles and Text about the Berber in Tunisia. If you don’t want to read all the text, just scroll down. The rugs are beautiful and you’ll see that many of them use the same motifs found in the Berber rugs in Morocco. Mr. Howe also showed photos of Tunisia so you get an overall feel for the country.

The second post has photos of articles that were brought to the lecture. There are embroidered dresses and some beautiful silk wedding scarves. I’m including one photoof a rug  below to get you interested. Enjoy!
