Berbervrouwen - HAML, tejido plano - 280 cm - 155 cm
Lana sobre lana - Túnez - Principios del siglo XX

Rare piece.
Around 1920.
It is called a Hami, made by Berbers in south Tunisia.
These items are made as show pieces.
The technique is very time consuming and needs discipline and craftsmanship.
The pattern is woven in with the inlaid threads.
At the rear, the threads continue.
Please see the detailed photos.

literature: AZETTA, Berbervrouwen en hun kunst, Paul Vandenbroek.

Interesting to know: such a Haml comes directly from a culture which has been passed on from mother to daughter for thousands of years.
In fixed ways of working.
The patterns are thus a style someone thought was nice.
Since the Neolithicum, people make patterns and ornaments which they pass on. We find them in textiles and also on post shards. And all around the world, those Neolithic patterns match.
