The medinas of Marrakesh and other Moroccan tourist hubs are lined with intricately woven Berber carpets. Their history is as stunning and detailed as their designs. These precious works of art are made by Berber women from the villages who have traditionally passed the traditions of dyeing and weaving from mother to daughter. Sadly today, this ancient Berber art that once sustained hundreds of families is dying out, as competitive pricing and middlemen nudge rug makers out of the market. As profits dwindle, one Berber women’s association has taken up the fight to keep this precious custom alive return its livelihood to the hands of the women who weave their culture into beautiful, brightly colored art.
