EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Aït Bou Ichaouen presents the beauty and diversity of textiles from a small Moroccan tribe whose weavings are unlike those found elsewhere. Living in an isolated area that was unknown to the carpet world until 1997, the women who wove these textiles boldly used colors in striking motifs. Many of their designs and techniques have not been identified elsewhere in Morocco.These women regularly invented motifs to record key events in the tribe's history. They wove Moroccan War Rugs in memory of the twenty-six-year struggle against French domination.Their newly invented designs join many traditional carpet and textile motifs, some of which go back to the Bronze Age or earlier. These archaic designs reflect an older North African weaving tradition now almost entirely lost. In their isolation, the women of the tribe preserved an important part of the world's textile heritage while showing an ability to adapt to changing events.The Saulniers have collected Moroccan pile rugs, flatweaves, and other textiles since 1975. From their collection, Aït Bou Ichaouen presents 100 carefully selected weavings that originate in the pre-Saharan foothills on the eastern slopes of the High Atlas Mountains.Aït Bou Ichaouen also includes a rigorous structural analysis of each textile and a comprehensive appendix on the weaving techniques employed by the tribe's weavers.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In southeastern Morocco, around the oasis of Tafilalet, the Ait Khabbash people weave brightly colored carpets, embroider indigo head coverings, paint their faces with saffron, and wear ornate jewelry. Their extraordinarily detailed arts are rich in cultural symbolism; they are always breathtakingly beautiful—and they are typically made by women. Like other Amazigh (Berber) groups (but in contrast to the Arab societies of North Africa), the Ait Khabbash have entrusted their artistic responsibilities to women. Cynthia Becker spent years in Morocco living among these women and, through family connections and female fellowship, achieved unprecedented access to the artistic rituals of the Ait Khabbash. The result is more than a stunning examination of the arts themselves, it is also an illumination of women's roles in Islamic North Africa and the many ways in which women negotiate complex social and religious issues. One of the reasons Amazigh women are artists is that the arts are expressions of ethnic identity, and it follows that the guardians of Amazigh identity ought to be those who literally ensure its continuation from generation to generation, the Amazigh women. Not surprisingly, the arts are visual expressions of womanhood, and fertility symbols are prevalent. Controlling the visual symbols of Amazigh identity has given these women power and prestige. Their clothing, tattoos, and jewelry are public identity statements; such public artistic expressions contrast with the stereotype that women in the Islamic world are secluded and veiled. But their role as public identity symbols can also be restrictive, and history (French colonialism, the subsequent rise of an Arab-dominated government in Morocco, and the recent emergence of a transnational Berber movement) has forced Ait Khabbash women to adapt their arts as their people adapt to the contemporary world. By framing Amazigh arts with historical and cultural context, Cynthia Becker allows the reader to see the full measure of these fascinating artworks.
