In these often very modest domestic homes, Berber women weave carpets from torn fabrics from salvaged textiles. A thousand rags or bits of cotton, nylon or synthetic threads, or more rarely wool, are used to make fabulous decorations.
The contrast between the poverty of the material and the richness of the composition adds to the astonishment and wonder of this popular art.
While until recently, these carpets did not interest anyone and the carpet dealers in the souks did not even offer them, a movement of interest was born which spread from Europe to the USA and Japan.
