The loom is a special combination of patience and anticipation – it comes alive when warped and dies when the warp is cut to free the cloth. In Morocco the loom is respected and it is often protected from the evil eye by the Hand of Fatima. The Harvest of the Loom is as equally celebrated as the Harvest of the Field.  Wool and grain are the natural gifts of the earth that hold all mysteries of life. My work is a tribute to the memory of my mother who patiently spent many nights behind her loom, weaving with anticipation to harvest many woven gifts.
