Musaggat, "dropped" weft twining

Saudi Arabians do a number of kinds of weft twining. One jewel-like type is used to make small, light items, such as pot holders or small bags, using perl cotton or similar fine, shiny yarn. It is called "dropped" because the warps are hung on twine stretched between ones knees or on a box-like object. The design possibilities are unlimited, and patterns are usually completed in modules and pushed upward tightly.
