  10. Morocco Learning how to weave carpets

    While in Morocco I learned how to make two types of carpets.  This is a pile/knotted carpet, almost always woven in red, sometimes with black designs.  The looms were set up in women's homes so they could work whenever they had a chance.  The women sold the carpets in the local market, or kept them for their own use. This type of carpet would take several weeks to complete.
