Our World Tuesday - Egypt

Our World Tuesday Graphic


Our World Tuesday

November 2007 - Cairo Egypt

I'm continuing our first day of touring in Cairo.

On the road as we left the Step Pyramids in Sakkara there are several carpet making schools on both sides of the road.




As you enter you will see women and children making actual carpets based on complex designs. You can watch how they stitch and knot the carpets and see the different materials in use.







We didn't buy anything!

  1. Wow! How fascinating to see how they turn woolen strands into works of art! What a wonderful skill. Those carpets are treasures.
