So I was this privileged to spent some time in the Sinaidesert with the amazingly kind and wise Bedouins and I was taken away by the beauty of their fabrics .... used everyday, needed for protection, to sit on, to carry essentials, made of cotton, of goathair, camelhair or sheephair
A tent, made of goathair
These fabrics give shelter , whether it is a very warm desertday or a very cold desertnight... ...
that's why the Bedouins make them and carry them with them as they move on through the desert again and again...and again
and a rug, made of camelhair
I took my fabric into the desert and worked on it... filled it with words of the desert ... and now that I am home again my fabric carries the memories of it.
