KILIMS, Essaouira, Morocco
KILIM Kilims are flat tapestry-woven carpets or rugs produced from the Balkans to Pakistan. Kilims can be purely decorative or can function as prayer rugs. Kilims are produced by tightly interweaving the warp and weft strands of the weave to produce a flat surface with no pile. Most kilim weaves are "weft-facing", i.e., the horizontal weft strands are pulled tightly downward so that they hide the vertical warp strands. When the end of a color boundary is reached, the weft yarn is wound back from the boundary point. Thus, if the boundary of a field is a straight vertical line, a vertical slit forms between the two different color areas where they meet. For this reason, most kilims can be classed as "slit woven" textiles. The slits are beloved by collectors, as they produce very sharp-etched designs, emphasizing the geometry of the weave. Weaving strategies for avoiding slit formation, such as interlocking, produce a more blurred design image. The weft strands, which carry the visible design and color, are almost always wool, whereas the hidden warp strands can be either wool or cotton. The warp strands are only visible at the ends, where they emerge as the fringe. This fringe is usually tied in bunches, to ensure against loosening or unraveling of the weave. Because kilims are cheaper than pile rugs, beginning carpet collectors often start with them. Despite what many perceive as their secondary (or inferior) status to pile carpets, kilims have become increasingly collectible in themselves over recent years, with quality pieces now commanding high prices. What some sensed as inferiority was actually a different nature of rugs woven for indigenous use as opposed to rugs woven on a strictly commercial basis. Because kilims were not a major export article, there were no foreign market pressures changing the designs, as happened with pile carpets. Once collectors began to value authentic village weaving, kilims became popular. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Medina of Essaouira, formerly named Mogador (name originating from the Phoenician word Migdol meaning a « small fortress »), is an outstanding example of a fortified town of the mid-eighteenth century, surrounded by a wall influenced by the Vauban model. Constructed according to the principles of contemporary European military architecture, in a North African context, in perfect harmony with the precepts of Arabo-Muslim architecture and town-planning, it has played a major role over the centuries as an international trading seaport, linking Morocco and sub-Saharan Africa with Europe and the rest of the world. The town is also an example of a multicultural centre as proven by the coexistence, since its foundation, of diverse ethnic groups, such as the Amazighs, Arabs, Africans, and Europeans as well as multiconfessional (Muslim, Christian and Jewish). Indissociable from the Medina, the Mogador archipelago comprises a large number of cultural and natural sites of Outstanding Universal Value. Its relatively late foundation in comparison to other medinas of North Africa was the work of the Alaouite Sultan Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdallah (1757-1790) who wished to make this small Atlantic town a royal port and chief Moroccan commercial centre open to the outside world. Known for a long time as the Port of Timbuktu, Essaouira became one of the major Atlantic commercial centres between Africa and Europe at the end of the 18th century and during the 19th century.

Day 234a / 365 - August 15, 2010
"Design Star" After yet another highly successful day at work, I got home, we ate dinner, and then settled in for the finale of The Next Food Network Star, as well as the next to last episode of HGTV's Design Star. This inspired me to show off one of my recent design attempts. I have not had anything on the coffee table in the living room space, and with the new area rug I recently purchased, it really makes the coffee table look bland. When we don't have have it cluttered with crap. I was at a store a few weeks ago, and although I had a list of specific things I needed to get, I decided to wander around and see what else was on the shelves. And then I spotted these "things" Decorative orbs they are called, it seems. They had a number of different kinds, but I was instantly attracted to these. Each clear tube contained ivory, beige/tan and green ones. I loved the organic texture, the colors and the natural feel of them. The ivory and tan pick up the color of my sofa slipcover, and the green picks up the green in the dining area rug, as well as the greens in the the big gay floral arrangement and the fake ivy plants. Two shelves below was this wooden vessel. A walk to another department led me to the cloth underneath, which picks up the color of the area rug below beautifully. The best part?? It was all at WalMart, and the total look cost.... $32.50. Sold! Perhaps I could ressurrect Design On A Dime. Especially if that hunky bear Charles would come back and be part of the show!
