The Bedouins are a nomadic people who, historically, have lived across the Middle East and North Africa, inhabiting arid areas and moving their base with the turning of the seasons. Traditionally women's work, the Bedouin style of weaving was developed in their unique culture, creating household items suited for life in the desert. Sheep wool from one's own herd is spun into thread, colored with natural dye and woven into a fabric using a ground loom. The particularly tight and strong fabric is used for tents, rugs, pillows and other domestic items.
