Hello again. I do not really know much about textiles really. I have just searched a few books and the web so all your comments are really helpful. I just collect these pieces of cloth and weaving if they are not too expensive and to my eye look pretty and skillful.
This is what I think is a saddle cloth 105x61cm. Wool, cotton and silk. The silk is mixed into and making high lights in all the motif structures. Sadly I am not good enough with the camera to show this in the pictures. I do not think this is antique but it is also far from being recent. Is this woven and then embroidered or some how done at the same time on the loom? I could try and add details. Any comments please.

I don't know anything about attribution on this one. In order to make any comments on technique it would be necessary to see details - both back and front please.

to me it looks like a pretty new (or tourist made) piece from northern africa; probably tunesia or algeria

It could be. It is quite complex and does contain silk. Some people seem quite keen and knowledgeable on the matter.
