After a thorough cleansing these beautiful vintage Beni Ouarain carpets are rolled up incredibly tightly and left to drip on makeshift poles. Imagine the weight of one wet white giant considering that the general weight of a dry carpet is around 35 kg!
Once most of the water has dripped off, the carpet is rolled out to dry and air in the sun.

Shopping for a belly dance costume in the souk and learning the shimmy shake!
Lots of camels to feed!
Never bored of henna painting!
Siesta on hot days, nothing better than a pile of Beni Ouarain carpets to lie on!
