Bedouin rug kira-cph.
kira-cph works together with a group of Bedouin women in a desert town on the edge of Sahara. The women carry on the tradition passed on in generations of weaving rugs and desert tents on narrow earth weaves. Each stretch of woven fabric is stitched together to form tents. Rugs for the floor are made on upright weaves.
The work process starts with lots of raw sheep wool piled up on the floor. The women wash and remove all impurities from the wool, then spin it into yarn and weave the rugs.
