The Incredible Rugmakers of Fès, pt. 1

An abundance of skilled artisans earn their daily bread in the old medina of Fez, and I was able to watch two women at work as they created a rug before my eyes. Over 1,300 families contribute to the carpet-making industry in Fès. Watch the nimble fingers of these women as they turn imagined patterns into real objects of art. Fès, Morocco July 17, 2012
