About this title


Moroccan tapestry is beautiful in the harmony of its figures and colours. Its fabric encloses a higher beauty, however. A beauty of meaning: hidden, cryptic, more than just textile, their infused meanings make them veritable texts.
This volume aids tapestry-lovers better understand that which they love. An exploration of the aesthetic qualities of knotted tapestry and weaving, highly descriptive, moves towards a central reflection: should these objects, considered with high respect in their places of origin, be treated as artisanal works or art? The deep-rooted social significance of these tapestries is studied through the mechanics of symbolisation.
