Weaving and tiles in Marrakech

More images from Linda's recent visit to Marrakech.

This time, she visited a local textile business run by Faissal who took her to see his workshop in the city. He is the third generation of his family to carry on the family’s weaving business. 

The family weave a range of scarves and shawls in plain or twill weaves in wool or cotton. They use yarns in irresistable soft and subtle colours - and a few have been bought over Linda's visits!

Note the wonderful tiles and decoration on the walls and ceiling. The young man winding bobbins is sporting an amazing T-shirt which somehow compliments the traditional tiles behind him!!
