Red Hearts from Tidili, Al Haouz

The Haouz plain stretches out like a carpet in front of the Atlas mountains. Villages are scattered rurally along the green fields that are sometimes barren. In springtime, Moroccan ladies are out with babies on their backs in the sunshine foraging the fields for bitter greens. When back home, they cook and weave and the babies are still on their backs sleeping. Younger women often go to help. They long to find a mate of their own. Maybe they have their eye on someone.

This red carpet, dyed from natural red madder, means something with two hearts entwined. She felt something and was moved to express her feelings like they do in some of the more collectable “painting” carpets.
