Greetings All- I just wanted to post a site I found belonging to an old friend from my Saudi days: http://www.beduinweaving.com/toc.htm
Joy May Hilden was a weaver and acknowledged expert on the weavings of the Arabian peninsula. Arabia is a place with few resources, except oil of course, and weaving was one of the few creative outlets. As in many places, it is disappearing as more tribal peoples become urbanized (tho the site shows 'urban' looms) and their lifestyles and needs change.
