The Bedouin, from the Arabic "badaw", are predominantly Muslim, desert-dwelling Arab nomadic pastoralist found throughout most of the desert belt extending from the Atlantic coast of the Sahara to the Arabian Desert. Their numbers have been decreasing consistently since the late 19th century. Bedouin weavers use 100% hand-spun wool to create a tonal rug that features natural shades.
