The Lakiya Negev Bedouin Weaving

The Lakiya Negev Bedouin Weaving was established in 1991 as an income project for the Bedouin women living in the Negev, South Israel. Approximately 150 women develop the traditional skills of spinning and weaving the wool and discover new skills of dyeing, producing and managing a business. Lakiya’s rugs are all hand-woven on traditional ground looms using the wool of local desert sheep. The aim of the project is to revive and preserve a craft that is central to the Bedouin social and cultural heritage, with traditional patterns and colors incorporated into the contemporary lifestyle products. A visit to the Lakiya Negev Weaving Visitor’s Center provides visitors with a chance to learn first-hand about the Bedouin way of life. One can go on a weaving tour led by Bedouin women and even hold a family event in the beautiful Bedouin tent which can hold up to 100 people. One can order Bedouin food, music and storytelling for the complete, authentic experience.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year. For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
