Summary This text is among the first to delve deeply into the little known history of Moroccan carpets. Among the revelations this book provides is the correction of the widely held belief that "no Moroccan or Tunisian carpets predates the 19th century". There are three sections covering the historical, technical and aesthetic significance of Morocco's carpet weaving heritage. The technical and aesthetic sections are the most exhaustive - the former covering the three main styles of carpets, and the latter exploring the various styles and thoughts that inspire the imagery of the carpets.
